We couldn’t be more excited to let you know that Stephanie Khoo has been promoted to Partner and Jasleen Kaur will be joining as a Principal. Since arriving at Nyca in 2019, Steph has been instrumental in sourcing and signing investments in fintechs around the world, especially in insurtech, regulatory and compliance software, and payments. Jasleen joins us from CE Innovation Capital, the venture arm of CreditEase, where she was an Investor based in San Francisco. These two women embody Nyca’s mission of investing in technologies that expand access to financial products while creating a better user experience.
Ms. Khoo has been an indispensable part of Nyca since joining the firm. In addition to leading Nyca’s insurtech investing in companies including Tint (intrinsic insurance) and CoverForce (insurance APIs), she has also led investments in the payment orchestration company Gr4vy, as well as compliance-focused firms like Modern Logic (no-code compliance workflow). She guides much of our thinking on capital markets and has also steered Nyca’s growth-stage investments in Payoneer (borderless commerce payments), Revolut (global financial superapp) and GoCardless (account-to-account payments). Stephanie joined Nyca from Goldman Sachs, where she was a Vice President covering fintech and insurtech within the Investment Banking Division.
Steph has made an impact at since the day she joined. Her rigor, dedication, and ability to see through complex issues make her a valuable asset to her teammates here as well as to the companies in which we invest. Her promotion to Partner is extremely well-deserved and is not only an indication of what she has done but what we believe she has to offer in the future.
Jasleen Kaur will join Nyca Partners on March 1, 2022, after spending her early career at JPMorgan and most recently at CE Innovation Capital. While at JPMorgan, she advised high-growth technology companies, working with the teams at Peloton, Airbnb, Elastic, and Ring. At CreditEase, Jasleen focused on investing in all things fintech and enterprise software, having worked on the teams that invested in companies like Bolt (payments infrastructure), Figure (lending and blockchain infrastructure), Varo Bank (challenger bank), and SafetyWing (nomad insurance). Jasleen has also been recognized as one of “NYC FinTech Women’s Inspiring FinTech Females” in 2021 for her achievements and insights.
We have worked with Jasleen for years and have long admired her unique perspectives on investments, her attention to detail, and her ability to get things done. We know that she will be a tremendous asset and a wonderful addition to Nyca. Her background and experience fit exactly what we were looking for as we expand our team.
Please join us in congratulating Steph on her promotion and welcoming Jasleen to Nyca.
