Marketplace lending is a team sport, and we’re excited to announce a new member of the Upstart team. Jamie Ramenofsky joins us this week to lead our capital markets and institutional investor initiatives.
Jamie joins us from Lending Club and prior to that, Barclays, where she focused on securitized products in New York and London. She graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Applied Economics and Management. Jamie was also Captain and twice MVP of the Cornell Women’s Ice Hockey team.
After 16 months, we’re approaching 12,000 loans and $170M in originations on our platform. In addition to seeing exceptional growth, we’re also pleased to see strong credit performance and consistent improvements to our funnel, acquisition costs, and operations. With Jamie’s help, we hope to expand on our base of institutional investors to meet the growing demand for Upstart loans.
We’ll be in Miami next week for ABS East, so we hope to see you there!
