Investment finance

We provide a broad range of financing for real estate, aircraft, and professional sports leagues and teams, as well as tailored loans using art and securities as collateral.

A holistic and considered approach to borrowing is an essential part of your overall wealth management strategy.

With an understanding of your specific needs and circumstances, however complex or global, we can provide tailored advice and credit solutions.

We have in-house experience and specialist knowledge of the assets we finance, a distinguished reputation, and key industry relationships to help achieve your goals.

Among the hallmarks of our service are competitive interest rates, customized loan terms and structures, and a responsive loan approval process.

Our strategies range from traditional to innovative.

We work closely with colleagues across the Private Bank to integrate related services, such as structuring and wealth planning.

We also partner with other parts of Citi to deliver expertise relating to mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, and more.


We are experienced in cross-border financing and lending to entities such as trusts, partnerships, and limited-liability companies.

Through our Global Client Service, we can provide financing in jurisdictions outside of your home region.

To help you determine how much leverage to use, our Global Investment Lab can provide scenario analyses and other insights to help inform your financing strategy.

The liquidity we help you realize can be deployed for business or personal purposes, making a new acquisition or pursuing opportunistic investments.

We provide customized financing for our clients, working closely with them to understand their needs and crafting loans that complement their overall wealth strategy.
