KBRA Assigns Preliminary Ratings to Pagaya AI Debt Grantor Trust 2024-5 and Pagaya AI Debt Trust 2024-5

2 May 2024   |   New York


KBRA assigns preliminary ratings to seven classes of notes issued by Pagaya AI Debt Grantor Trust 2024-5 and Pagaya AI Debt Trust 2024-5 (collectively “PAID 2024-5”), a consumer loan ABS transaction. PAID 2024-5 has initial credit enhancement levels of 63.43% for the Class A Notes to 6.69% for the Class E Notes. Credit enhancement is comprised of overcollateralization, subordination of junior note classes, a cash reserve account funded at closing, and excess spread.

PAID 2024-5 will issue nine classes of notes totaling $396.0 million with KBRA rating the Class A through Class E Notes and Class AB and Class ABC Notes. KBRA will not be rating the Class F Notes, the Certificates, and the Class EFR Securities. PAID 2024-5 is a fully prefunded transaction where there is no collateral funded at closing and the notes are initially supported by amounts deposited in the prefunding account.

Pagaya Structured Products LLC, the sponsor and administrator, is a 100% owned subsidiary of Pagaya US Holding Company LLC (formerly known as Pagaya Investments US LLC), which is a 100% owned subsidiary of Pagaya Technologies Ltd. (“Pagaya Technologies”), an Israeli corporation listed on the NASDAQ (PGY). Pagaya Technologies is a financial technology company in the lending marketplace that uses machine learning, big data analytics, and AI-driven credit and analysis technology. This transaction is the 22nd publicly rated securitization sponsored by Pagaya Structured Products LLC (collectively with its affiliates, “Pagaya” or the “Company”).

KBRA applied its Consumer Loan ABS Global Rating Methodology, as well as its Global Structured Finance Counterparty Methodology and ESG Global Rating Methodology as part of its analysis of the transaction’s proposed capital structure and Pagaya’s historical gross loss data. KBRA has previously rated securitizations sponsored by each of the respective Platform Sellers except for U.S. Bank. Operative agreements and legal opinions will be reviewed prior to closing.
