Summary

  • YieldStreet has been consistently launching new portfolios throughout the year. In February 20th, the announcement of Accelerated Pre-Settlement Portfolio V brought down the platform for all afternoon due to traffic spikes. The platform is experiencing excess demand.
  • I had a large cash sitting in my bank account waiting for LexShares new investment opportunities. This year may be the only chance to invest in individual cases.
  • It appears that the demand from investors to allocate funds for new cases remains strong. You have less than 20 minutes to commit as they get filled up quickly. It is necessary to take action immediately without analyzing the full details of the case.
    • On August 29th, a new case popped up with 22% pre-funded by the internal hedge fund. A small retail investor added $5,000 before I made a commitment. I took all remaining amount as soon as I gained access.
    • On August 31st, another case popped up with 12% pre-funded. Initially it was open to selected members only. After more than 1 hour of waiting and watching, LexShares finally granted access to all members. The case was 82% funded by then. I took all remaining amount as soon as I gained access.
  • Yieldstreet has upped the length of any new Pre-Settlement Portfolio deals from 36 months to 48 months to accommodate the massive increase in state bar backlog.
