Cinergy, a company launched by LuminArx Capital, will provide a variety of private loan options to businesses, including Citi’s international clientele. It will make investments in a variety of asset types, such as corporate debt across the capital structure and asset-backed credit (commercial, consumer, and residential).
LuminArx and its institutional partners plan to invest over $2bn to boost Cinergy.
Furthermore, Citi’s established Spread Products franchise will offer Cinergy modern leverage options to increase Cinergy’s investment capacity.
Mitali Sohoni, head of asset-backed financing at Citi stated: “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. Powered by LuminArx’s execution capabilities and the significant industry experience of its team, I believe Cinergy represents a truly differentiated offering.”
Through the use of Cinergy, LuminArx will have the opportunity to employ Citi’s unique financing capabilities and a variety of private credit options that the company has sourced through its vast worldwide client network, notably its commercial banking business.
“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,” added Gideon Berger, co-founder, and CEO of LuminArx. “We are increasingly hearing from investors looking to capitalise 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.”
