We strive to simplify investing and build financial independence for all.

YieldStreet connects investors to investment opportunities in alternative asset classes like real estate and litigation finance. YieldStreet was built because our founders were frustrated by the lack of options regular investors had to participate in potentially higher return investment opportunities that also had low correlation to the stock market.  Further, technology can greatly improve the fundraising process for many borrowers. We believe top notch technology and data can help us build the world’s most robust alternative investment marketplace to connect investors with borrowers.  

And, we’ve been growing like crazy. Join us on this amazing journey.
