Pagaya Tops $1.2B Assets Under Management, Announces $200MM ABS

December 18, 2019 GMT

NEW YORK & TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2019--

Pagaya, a leading artificial intelligence (AI) investment manager, today announced the closing of its fifth capital markets transaction this year. This latest transaction closed at $200 million and brings Pagaya’s total assets under management (AUM) to over $1.2 billion.

It has been a banner year for Pagaya:

“Asset management hasn’t significantly evolved in the last 30 years, despite the proliferation of data and firms racing to adopt advanced technologies,” said Harvey Golub, Retired Chairman and CEO of American Express, and Pagaya board member. “Pagaya has accomplished what is just a hope and a dream for most firms and is ushering in a new era of asset management.”

Unlike other asset managers, advanced technology fuels Pagaya’s investments as its AI analyzes millions of data points to underwrite assets and manage risk. The firm’s data-driven investment strategy consistently produces above-market-average returns for investors.

“After significantly investing in the development of proprietary AI analytics, our growth has skyrocketed as our state-of-the-art algorithms have unlocked significant investment opportunities for clients,” said Krubiner. “Pagaya’s achievements wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of our entire team. We surpassed our targets for 2019 and have adjusted our goals for 2020 accordingly — this is just the beginning.”
