Citi and LuminArx Capital Announce the Launch of Private Lending Vehicle

Citi and LuminArx Capital announced the launch of Cinergy, a financing vehicle in the private lending market.

Launched by LuminArx Capital, Cinergy will offer a range of private credit solutions to companies, including Citi’s global client base. It will invest across multiple asset classes, including asset-backed credit (commercial, consumer and residential) and corporate debt across the capital structure.

To support Cinergy, LuminArx and its global institutional partners intend to commit more than $2 billion of capital.  In addition, Citi’s spread products franchise will provide leverage solutions to Cinergy to expand its investment capacity.

“The private lending market is experiencing transformative growth, and we are pleased that Cinergy will enhance our ability to meet the capital needs of our clients,” Mitali Sohoni, head of asset-backed financing at Citi, said. “Powered by LuminArx’s execution capabilities and the significant industry experience of its team, I believe Cinergy represents a truly differentiated offering.”

Cinergy will enable LuminArx to access a range of private credit opportunities sourced by Citi through its global client network — including from its commercial banking division — and utilize Citi’s financing capabilities.

“The launch of Cinergy reflects our commitment to introducing innovative investment solutions and our focus on providing creative and bespoke financing opportunities to our partners,” Gideon Berger, co-founder and CEO of LuminArx Capital, said. “We are increasingly hearing from investors looking to capitalize on the growth of private credit in new and differentiated ways, and Cinergy provides a vehicle for achieving this that will be unique in the market.”
