Kushner Companies spokeswoman Christine Taylor criticized The Times, calling the story an attempt to make "insinuating connections that do not exist to disparage the financial institutions and companies involved".
It was one of the largest loans Kushner Cos. received past year.
The couple sold off some of their assets before starting their White House jobs past year, but Kushner still has stake in hundreds of companies.
"Our company is a multibillion enterprise that is extremely financially strong".
Citigroup said there was no conjunction between the decision to lend the money to the company and Kushner's role in the White House, since Kushner Companies had been a bank client since before the election.

"Now tonight, we learn that Kushner's companies, companies in which... he partially owns them or holds a stake in them, they have received hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from entities whose executives have been meeting with Jared Kushner regularly in the White House in his capacity as a senior White House official". At the time, the spokeswoman for Kushner Cos. said the firm "has cooperated and will continue to cooperate with any reasonable request for information".

And Kushner has had major dealings with some of the nation's wealthiest investors, including Beny Steinmetz, who is the subject of a bribery investigation. His real estate holdings and other investments are worth as much as $761 million, according to government ethics filings.

Apollo has sought ways to benefit from the White House's possible infrastructure plan.
Last year, the regulators asked Deutsche Bank for details about transactions it had flagged as suspicious that had apparent ties to officials in Mr. Trump's administration or people close to them, one of the people said.
