Es kommen fast täglich Sachen aus der Finanzwelt und besonders von der Wall Street bei denen man sich immer erstmal vergewissern muß ob nicht doch gerade der 1. April ist.

While Citi teams up with KKR / FT
KKR and Citigroup are understood to have agreed to form an off-balance-sheet vehicle with about $5bn of equity and $10bn of debt to buy impaired loans, which could include some from Citi’s investment bank.
The joint venture brings together the private equity firm responsible for some of the biggest leveraged buyouts in the run-up to the credit crunch and the bank that agreed to finance many of those deals.
The vehicle could allow Citi to sell some leveraged buyout debt, which it has underwritten but is struggling to syndicate, as well as other troubled loans.
