Founder & President Yieldstreet
Michael Weisz is the Founder & President of Yieldstreet, a digital wealth management platform changing the way financial products are delivered and the way wealth is created. Yieldstreet was just named 46th fastest growing company on Inc 500 list for the 2nd year running and was also proud to be named Financial Time's 12th Fastest Growing Company in the US this year.
Michael is responsible for Yieldstreet's investment strategy and originator network and has overseen $1.5B in transactions over his career. Michael began his career at a $1.2 billion NY- Based credit fund, working his way to Vice President before co-founding his own fund in 2013. During his decade on the institutional side, he grew frustrated that access to superior wealth creation opportunities was not accessible to individual investors. In 2015, he teamed with Milind Mehere to create Yieldstreet.
When not working, you can find Michael spending time with his wife and three kids or hosting dinners at his home- bringing together friends and family from all backgrounds.
