2023 HW Tech Trendsetter: Arvind Mohan

Arvind Mohan

Arvind Mohan is CEO and board member of Kiavi, one of the nation’s largest private lenders to real estate investors with more than $16 billion in funded loans. As CEO, Mohan guides and oversees Kiavi’s technology strategy, which includes leveraging cutting-edge machine learning models and artificial intelligence to give real estate investors across the country a faster and more reliable way to access the financing they need to unlock the value in America’s aged homes. Kiavi’s unique approach to lending — using data and technology to weigh factors related to the property rather than only personal profile data — democratizes access to capital, allowing more entrepreneurs to scale their real estate businesses and combat the housing crisis.

A computer engineer by training, Mohan has both a deep real estate finance background and true technology roots. He uses his unique background to inform, develop and guide Kiavi’s technology strategy, which is one of the lender’s key differentiators.

Because its process is entirely online, Kiavi is able to provide borrowers in every corner of the country with easy (and sometimes instant) underwriting. Kiavi uses 7.8 billion data points from its more than 65,000 transactions to power its machine-learning models.

Now 10 years old, Kiavi has played an integral leadership role in modernizing the private lending and mortgage spaces. During Mohan’s seven and a half years at Kiavi, he has brought scalability and improvements to the legacy business model of private lending. Today as CEO, Mohan is focused on using modern technology, AI and machine learning models and data to advance the private lending sector.
