Pagaya, a US-Israeli firm that uses machine learning and big data to manage institutional money, said on Wednesday it raised $25 million in a funding round led by Oak HC/FT.

Other participants included Pagaya’s seed investor Viola Ventures, Clal Insurance, GF Investments, former American Express CEO Harvey Golub and Thailand’s Siam Commercial Bank.

The funding comes on the heels of Pagaya creating a $100 million consumer credit asset-backed security managed by artificial intelligence, which the company announced in February.

Pagaya manages $450 million for banks, insurance companies, pensions funds, asset managers and sovereign wealth funds.
