2 mins read

MPOWER Financing, a mission-driven fintech firm specialising in non-cosigned loans for students worldwide, has announced the appointment of Jatin Rajput as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Rajput’s elevation comes as the company’s previous CFO, Rob Partlow, transitions to a role on MPOWER’s Board of Directors after more than 33 years of experience in consumer finance and fintech.

Rajput brings to the role a wealth of experience garnered from a distinguished career spanning 25 years. Having served on MPOWER’s board since 2020, Rajput is well-versed in the company’s operations and strategic direction. His expertise encompasses driving strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and investments across both publicly traded and emerging global firms.

Previously, Rajput held the position of CFO at Deskera, a B2B SaaS platform, and founded Ad-In Ventures, an investment firm specialising in fintech companies across the United States and Asia. His professional journey also includes a noteworthy 12-year tenure at Deutsche Bank, where he led corporate M&A and strategy across the Americas and Asia Pacific regions.

With an MBA from INSEAD and a Chartered Accountant designation from India, Rajput’s extensive international experience uniquely positions him to contribute to MPOWER’s global expansion efforts.

Meanwhile, outgoing CFO Rob Partlow will transition to MPOWER’s Board of Directors following a successful tenure marked by significant milestones, including scaling MPOWER’s capital markets engine to over $300 million in financing capacity.

This strategic leadership change comes at a pivotal moment for MPOWER, which recently secured over $300 million in financing commitments from prominent institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and Varde Partners. Rajput’s appointment underscores the company’s commitment to fostering innovation and growth in the student financing space.
