By far my favorite crowdfunding platform because the uniqueness of the asset class. Litigation finance is not correlated to the economy, the S&P 500, etc. and that at the end of the day, is what makes it an attractive addition to my portfolio. I'm involved in more than 20 offerings (since about October 2016) and so far so good. I did web searches, etc. like others but the two factors that convinced me to invest were: 1) Michael Weisz's talk w/the students at the Liebowitz Entrepreneur Program (you can watch on Youtube: https://youtu.be/alEVTF-wnto) 2) Their page on the deals that they did NOT do: https://www.yieldstreet.com/anti-investments
1) Michael Weisz is extremely bright and savvy, and smart people always figure it out
2) It's quite unique for a platform who would put up a page on deals that did not make it, which shows some good introspection on their part
All in all, quite satisfied with the asset class and the platform. The only comment I would make is that I hope in the future they will feature more offerings that are not from LawCash and also feature some commercial litigation offerings (most of the offerings currently are personal injury related)
Can't change the ratings (I'm using a Chrome browser) from the default 3.5 stars for some reason, but the ratings I would give are:
Platform fees: 3.5
Quality of Deals: 5.
