Michael Weisz

Founder & President, YieldStreet

Michael Weisz is the Founder and President of YieldStreet. Michael is responsible for YieldStreet’s investment strategy and originator network and has overseen more than $900M in transactions over his career.

Michael began his career at a $1.2 billion New York based credit fund, working his way to Vice President before co-founding his own fund in 2013. During his 10 years on the institutional side of the business, 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 late you can find Michael spending time with wife and three kids or hosting dinners at his home in Long Island - bringing together friends and family from all backgrounds.
