Yieldstreet Launches Promotion for a Market Leading 1% APY High Yield Account

December 21, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 21, 2021--

Yieldstreet, a leading multi-asset alternative investment platform driven to reduce friction and provide previously unattainable access to alternative investments, today announced it is rolling out a 1% APY high yield account promotion.

Yieldstreet is offering the 1% APY account to qualified new Yieldstreet members. This APY ranks as one of the highest in the market, according to comparable APYs on Bank Rate, and is more than 15 times the national money market average based on the national average rates as of November 15, 2021 per the FDIC.


Amid record savings and rising inflation, higher yields are more desirable than ever. Americans have been pouring money into yield-earning cash accounts with the US personal savings rate hitting a 62-year high in 2020, increasing by nearly 14%. US savings accounts pay an average of .06%, according to the FDIC as of November 30, 2021.

The newly launched account has no fees and no lock up period, but is expected to end in March 2022, unless extended. Deposits are FDIC insured up to $250k. For more information on eligibility, please visit:
