Pagaya, a global, data-driven financial technology company, has appointed Peter Silberstein as Head of Capital Development.
Last year, Pagaya hired five finance industry veterans, including Robert McDonald as General Manager of Auto Finance and Paul Limanni as Head of Capital Markets. The firm is deploying billions of dollars into personal loans and auto loans and has started expansion into point-of-sale products, credit cards, and single-family rentals. Pagaya’s multi-vertical advancement and extensive network of lending partners are on an unmatched trajectory.
“We will continue to add talented, multifaceted professionals across all verticals as we expand our product offerings to new partners and investors,” said Benjamin Blatt, Pagaya’s Chief Business Officer. “Peter’s background aligns perfectly with our organisational goals.”
A finance industry veteran, Silberstein previously held various strategic roles at Social Finance Inc (SoFi), Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley. Silberstein most recently served as the Head of Capital Markets at Figure Technologies, Inc (Figure), where he led the capital markets division and managed the company’s funding and execution strategies.
“I’m excited to join a company that puts so much emphasis on innovation for partners, investors, and ultimately consumers,” says Silberstein. “I look forward to advancing the efforts on all fronts.”
