NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--YieldStreet, a digital wealth management platform that is working to change the way that wealth is created, has become the first multi-asset platform to cross over $560MM invested since inception.
“We are delivering on our mission of prosperity for all, I'm proud we have now generated more than $48M of earned interest for our investor base that they would have never had access to before” said Milind Mehere, Founder and CEO of YieldStreet, “we are excited to be taking our mission to the next level with the release of our YieldStreet Wallet product that is available to everyone on the platform.”
Accredited and retail investors can now earn 2% annually on any cash held in YieldStreet Wallet. YieldStreet Wallet provides daily interest payments where funds are FDIC insured with no minimum balance requirements.* The new product was born out of investor requests to keep funds within the YieldStreet ecosystem where they can earn interest on their idle cash, a complementary product to current investment offerings.
“Our offerings within Marine Finance, Legal, Real Estate and Commercial Finance have led us to the $560MM invested milestone. As we continue to grow, we plan to build multibillion-dollar asset class verticals for our investor community using data science and bringing on sector experts to deepen our competencies,” said Michael Weisz, Founder and President of YieldStreet. “This marks an important point for the company as YieldStreet is expanding quickly while maintaining prudent risk management and more than 400% year-over-year revenue growth.”
To further company growth, YieldStreet has also brought on three senior additions to the team. Stefanos Fragos joins as Senior Representative Greece Office and Senior Credit Officer of YieldStreet's Marine Finance office in Athens, Greece where he will lead underwriting for the Marine asset class. Fragos brings more than 16 years of experience in senior positions at DVB Bank SE, and more than $800M of shipping transactions. Mitch Rosen joins as Head of YieldStreet’s Real Estate division where he will lead underwriting for the asset class. His commercial real estate and credit underwriting experience across senior roles at Brigade Capital and Marathon asset management will allow him to make an immediate impact on growth.
Jimmy Pandhi joins YieldStreet as Head of Strategic Finance where he will lead strategic projects and M&A activity. Pandhi previously held various finance leadership positions at Fortress Investment Group, Evercore Partners and New York Life. He has been involved in nearly $2BN of acquisitions and integrations and was an integral part of a $6BN IPO.
*Funds are held at Evolve bank and trust, an unaffiliated third party bank.
