Alternative Investing for the Masses
Bloomberg profiles YieldStreet, the online investment marketplace, digging in to some of their unique investment offerings. YieldStreet is trying to democratize investing by selling alternative investments normally reserved for billionaires and hedge funds. So far they have originated more than half a billion dollars and they have 80,000 people signed up to receive their investment offerings. YieldStreet has returned almost 13% to investors since December 2014, beating many traditional investments. But there are risks involved and Bloomberg details many of them in the article. Source.
