NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pagaya Technologies LTD. (NASDAQ: PGY) (“Pagaya” or “the Company”), a global technology company delivering AI-driven product solutions for the financial ecosystem, today announced the closing of PAID 2023-7, its 45th asset-backed securitization (ABS) and its 13th in 2023. Kroll Bond Rating Agency rated the transaction.
In the transaction, qualified institutional buyers purchased $693 million of asset-backed notes, which are expected to be backed by personal loans originated by lending partners on Pagaya’s AI-powered network. With its fully pre-funded model, capital is raised before Pagaya’s lending partners originate the loans. This new ABS transaction comes at a time of increased demand for Pagaya’s personal loan product, including the Company’s recent onboarding of a Top 5 Bank in the U.S.
Pagaya remains the number one personal loan ABS issuer by issuance size in the U.S., solidifying our reputation as the benchmark issuer of this product. Pagaya has raised over $18 billion in ABS transactions since 2018, including over $12 billion since the start of 2022 across multiple products.
“This latest transaction cements the continued momentum of our PAID ABS issuance program and demonstrates the attractiveness of Pagaya’s investment product – offering diverse consumer credit assets across all market conditions,” said Paul Limanni, Pagaya’s Chief Capital Officer. “We continue to see increased demand from investors, who recognize our expertise in delivering fit-for-market product structures that optimize the cost of capital and meet their needs.”
