2023 HW Finance Leader: Stephen Nicolo


Stephen Nicolo serves as the architect behind a growing force in the fintech market: an open-API enterprise platform that’s reshaping the $13 trillion servicing market. Nicolo understands the future of mortgage servicing technology must be built on sound financial footing. In an environment where every detail is highly regulated, he built an investment framework that allows Sagent to identify and pursue partnership opportunities that benefit the firm, its clients, and the mortgage ecosystem at large. 

Nicolo manages both incremental investment with existing stakeholders, including a leading private equity firm, and outside dealmaking with strategic partners and acquisition targets. Over the last 12 months, Nicolo solidified Sagent’s sound financial position through the development of detailed expense management processes while pursuing and modeling key M&A opportunities in the marketplace. Nicolo helps keep Sagent profitable at scale by holding the company to a diligent expense management framework, all while encouraging rapid innovation by providing internal teams with the resources they need to best serve clients and achieve wider business goals.
