Abstract banner of Yieldstreet Prism Fund meant to highlight diversity of asset classes offered to investors

With the Yieldstreet Prism Fund, investors have access to numerous alternative asset classes, all within a single fund. This investment product, available exclusively through the Yieldstreet platform, allows investors (regardless of accreditation status or net worth), to gain exposure to a wide range of alternative asset classes—under the exclusive management of Yieldstreet. With a single investment, your portfolio gains exposure to various alternative asset classes. The Fund currently has investments in Art, Commercial, Legal, Private Business Credit, Real Estate, and corporate preferred bonds.

The Yieldstreet Prism Fund is a Closed-End Fund (CEF) that assists investors in creating a fixed-income portfolio—a portfolio of investments that pay interest, dividends or distributions, if performing, until their maturity.

What’s the goal of the Yieldstreet Prism Fund?

The Fund’s primary objective is the generation of income for investors through investments in loans, bonds, and other debt instruments. The Fund aims to maximize the total return over the life of the Fund while simultaneously preserving capital within the Fund and managing the volatility of the assets over time. You can read more about the Fund’s investment strategy here.

The Yieldstreet Prism Fund expects to pay out quarterly distributions, at an annualized distribution rate of 8%.1 The Fund’s expected quarterly distributions and its distribution rate will be determined by the Fund’s board of directors in its sole discretion. 

What is the duration of the Fund, and is liquidity an option?

The termination date of the Fund is March 20242, with a potential option to investors for limited liquidity in June 2021. Then, on a quarterly basis thereafter, the Fund may offer to repurchase a limited number of shares from investors subject to the Fund’s board of directors approval and certain limitations that are outlined in the Fund’s prospectus.3

What fees and expenses are associated with the Fund?

As with most funds currently available in the broader market, there are fees and expenses associated with the the Yieldstreet Prism Fund:

  • Annual Management Fee: 1.0%4
  • Annual Administrative Expense: Maximum of 0.50%5

The Fund has agreed to reimburse the administrator and its affiliates for the fees, costs, and expenses incurred by the administrator and its affiliates in providing such services.

Is the Fund’s investing process the same as other offerings?

The investing process for the Yieldstreet Prism Fund is slightly different from other offerings available on the Yieldstreet platform. Below are a few key steps to be aware of when investing in the Fund. 

  1. There’s an initial investment window. During this initial window, investors submit their total desired allocation for the Yieldstreet Prism Fund. However, funds are not  withdrawn from Yieldstreet Wallets at this time. All funds will be pulled from Wallets once the investment window closes.
  2. It takes a few days for investor funds to be invested. Once all funds are withdrawn from investor Wallets, it will take approximately two business days for initial assets to be placed into the Fund.
  3. Unlike single-asset class offerings on our platform, the value of Yieldstreet Prism Fund shares are calculated regularly. The per-share value of the Fund is calculated using the Fund’s Net Asset Value (NAV). The NAV will be determined on at least a quarterly basis.
  4. Distributions from the Yieldstreet Prism Fund are expected to be paid out quarterly, subject to the discretion of the Fund’s board of directors and based on the Fund’s performance over the previous quarter. For more information on this, please refer to the Fund’s prospectus.
