YieldStreet’s technology connects investors to asset-based opportunities presented by best-in-class originators. And, its as easy as buying stocks.

YieldStreet investments are debt based alternative investments. YieldStreet Originators take out a loan for a project or need that is collaterized by an underlying asset the originator has, such as a real estate property or legal settlement.

Our offerings currently concentrate in three primary alternative asset classes; real estate, litigation finance and commercial finance. You can learn more about each of our asset classes on YieldStreet University. YieldStreet seeks investment opportunities that provide investors with low correlation to the broader stock market, and target annual yields between 8-20%.

As originators make principal and interest payments during the term of their loan, distributions are paid out directly to investors in the offering.

All YieldStreet offerings are asset-based, meaning your investment is backed by strong collateral such as vehicles or real estate. This collateral acts like insurance in the rare case a borrower defaults.

Our team does an initial review of the opportunity according to the five criteria set in our Investment Philosophy:
Asset-based with strong collateral
Low market correlation
Established asset managers
Short duration (1-3 years)
Attractive yield (8-20% annual target returns)

Like on my LendingHome review I agree with James' comments. Their real estate offerings are just "meh".

But I love having something as different in my portfolio as litigation based lending (pre-settlement, post-settlement and lawfirm lending). And for loans having a 13+% return on loans (I am seeing these returns in my account). Since I am looking for litigation based lending I give them a high mark for offering this as an alternative. LawCash is the actual "sponsor" that bundles these loans (usually a few hundred). I definitely would like to see more offerings that are alternative in nature. For this I gave them a slight ding in the quality of deals department.

I really like their dashboard and their investor tools for managing and understanding what is happening with my account (I only have litigation pre-settlement).

Hey Mark, one thing that would be nice is to have a rating dimension on their support. I had a very positive feeling about them since I talked with one of their team members and have an invitation to visit them in their office in NY. However, I have sent a few questions over recently and still waiting for response.

When I invested I expected some emails telling me next steps. I got nothing. However, logging the dashboard was super helpful and I feel it covers most of what I needed to know. However, just an email would have been great.

At this stage I plan on keeping some litigation lending in my portfolio (as long as this lending works out over the course of next few years)

I also feel that the reinvest model would really help. The problem is they are brokering a closed portfolio from LawCash. It seems that if LawCash added their own crowd funding platform they could do something like that?

I like this platform for is lawsuit-related investments.  They seem to be a high returning alternative to the stock market.  My only complaint with them is principle comes back very quickly.  I wish they would re-invest it so my princple would work for the advertised 3 year term.

Their real estate fund investment offerings appear OK, but yield only 9% for a relatively narrow spread of investments in the fund.  Investors can get 9+% returns in single-property investments relatively easily and a fund that only invests in a few holdings isn't that diversified.
