Yieldstreet’s Michael Weisz on the pandemic’s impact on digital wealth management

A few years back, the term ‘crowdfunding’ was pretty popular in fintech circles. We don’t really use that jargon anymore and many of the biggest players have naturally matured into digital wealth management platforms. Yieldstreet is one of those platforms — since inception, investors have deployed over $1 billion in asset classes like real estate, art and legal finance, and commercial loans.

Founder and president Michael Weisz joins me on the podcast to discuss broadly the impact COVID-19 is having on the adoption of fintech and which sectors are positioned to emerge successfully from this crisis. We talk about the evolution of digital wealth management firms in a Zoom world.
