Our Story

Learn about YieldWink

Yieldwink is changing the investing landscape by providing investors with direct access to alternative investment opportunities across real estate, businesses, and loans. The market for such investments has seen significant growth and is expected to reach $17 trillion by 2025—a 400% increase from 2010. While robo-advisors have paved the way for transparency and control for stock market investors, little has been done to advance alternative investment opportunities.After seven years as a consultant to financial advisors, Yieldwink's Founder, Jesse Khera, saw a void in the market: direct access to alternative investments without intermediaries. Historically, this kind of direct access has been limited to institutions and ultra-high-net-worth individuals.In a typical investing structure—where offerings travel through brokers, sponsors, and financial advisors to investors—each step in this process accrues fees. By identifying, vetting, contracting, and providing a direct access platform for alternative investments without layers of placement fees, Yieldwink makes these investments available to all investors. Yieldwink invests its own capital in every offering on the platform.

Yieldwink was created to help investors easily and directly access institutional-quality investments without fees-on-fees.

Jesse Khera
Founder, CEO
Jasdeep (Jesse) Khera is the founder of Yieldwink, where he leads fundraising, deal origination, and property development. Previously a VP at a $2B private credit firm based in New York, he has advised over 10,000 financial advisors throughout the US on alternative investments. He has also been an Advisor Consultant at a privately held $200B mutual fund firm and has experience in actuarial-risk sales at a Fortune 500 company. As a financial wholesaler, Jesse realized there must be a more efficient way for investors to access alternative investments, and the inefficiencies he witnessed served as the catalyst to create a new type of investment platform—Yieldwink. An expert real estate investor, he designed a proprietary model for identifying and valuing investment properties anywhere in the US, urban or rural. Mr. Khera earned a degree in Economics at The City College of New York and currently resides in Astoria, New York. Jesse is also the founder of an alternative investment firm, Goldsher Group. In his spare time, he enjoys reading non-fiction, boxing, chess, world war history, and his Shiba Inu, Coconut. He enjoys fishing (learned from his time in Minnesota) and golf (from his time in Georgia). He is still making an effort to earn a golf score below 100.
