Seasoned Research Analyst Joins Kueski to Foster New and Existing Relationships with Equity Investors and Creditors
GUADALAJARA, MEXICO/ACCESSWIRE/November 9, 2022/ Kueski, one of Latin America’s largest pay-as-you-go (BNPL) and online consumer lenders, today announced the appointment of Andrew Seiz as Senior Vice President of Capital Markets and investor relations. In his role, Seiz will be responsible for debt and equity financing initiatives and educating the investment community about Kueski’s business opportunities and future growth plans.
Seiz, who joins Kueski with extensive experience in emerging markets, was drawn to the company’s mission-driven culture and its vision for a more inclusive financial services industry in Mexico and Latin America. As Kueski continues to grow its product footprint and ecosystem, its primary focus will be on fostering appropriate capital and financing deals to support this.
“As a business grows, it’s important to have investors who understand and appreciate the management team’s mission and vision for growth – and to aim for real long-term partnerships,” Seiz said. “I am thrilled to join Kueski and look forward to supporting its mission to expand financial access to severely underbanked populations.”
Seiz brings over 25 years of capital markets and investing experience to Kueski. Previously, he was a portfolio manager in New York at alternative asset managers BFAM Partners and Pine River Capital Management, with a focus on emerging market credit, rates and equities. Seiz has also held senior positions at Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs, where he was Managing Director and Vice President of Credit Research in Hong Kong and New York.
“Andrew brings a wealth of experience to this role. His deep understanding of emerging markets in Latin America and his strong network within the international investment community will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business,” said Adalberto Flores, Founder and CEO of Kueski. “Andrew will serve as a trusted advisor as we continue to develop and execute our strategy to create an inclusive financial ecosystem that works for all market participants.”
Throughout 2022, Kueski has made several strategic hires and additions to its management team. Most recently, Sung Hae Kim joined Kueski as Director of Human Resources after holding leadership positions at Gitlab, VMWare, and HP. In February, Krishna Venkatraman, former Nubank chief data scientist and Mission Lane executive, joined Kueski as chief data officer.
Kueski is one of the largest buy-it-now, pay-later (BNPL) and online consumer lending companies in Latin America, providing financial services to consumers through three innovative products: Kueski Pay (BNPL ), Kueski Cash (personal loans) and Kueski Up (payday advances). Founded in 2012 with a mission to make financial life easier for Mexicans, Kueski leverages the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence and big data to expand access to traditional financial products and services. Kueski has raised over $300 million in equity and debt financing.
