Now, according to a report from The New York Times, Kushner Companies, which is run by Kushner's family, received $184 million from Apollo Global Management, whose founder, Joshua Harris, made "regular visits" to the White House in an advisory capacity.
When Kushner joined his father-in-law's administration, he stepped down as CEO of his family's real estate company but is still seen as closely linked to the business, which has sought loans from foreign countries and banks to cover the company's debt, potentially creating several conflicts of interest and problematic entanglements for Kushner. The outlet said Citigroup gave out an even larger loan last spring - $325 million.
The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that USA officials had intercepted conversations among officials from at least four foreign governments - China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Mexico and Israel - about using business opportunities to seek leverage over Mr Kushner.
Signature, a NY state-chartered bank, said in an email that, with the permission of its client, it could state that "the Kushner Family and Kushner Co have been clients since 2010". The agency is also requesting descriptions on how the banks processed Kushner's loans and whether the banks did any internal review of the Kushners and their companies, the person said.
"I don't know that any White House has done it this way before". Apollo Global Management lent the Kushner Cos.
Mr. Kushner is President Donald Trump's son-in-law and a senior adviser to the president.
The two reportedly spoke about a potential job opportunity at the White House, but the job did not come to fruition.

Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Lowell, said in a statement that Kushner "has met with hundreds of business people".
Taylor, of Kushner Cos, told the Times "stories like these attempt to make insinuating connections that do not exist to disparage the financial institutions and companies involved". The Kushner family and Kushner Cos. have been clients since 2010, she said.
The letter from the DFS is seeking information-as well as communications and documents-surrounding the financial agreements between Kushner, his business dealings and the three banks, according to the source. She said Citigroup negotiated the 2017 loan with Kushner Cos'. business partner, a real estate developer.
Separately, Kushner's business ties to Israel are reportedly being investigated by Robert Mueller, the U.S. special counsel probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Kushner also still holds a stake in the entity that owns the Brooklyn buildings and received the loan from Citigroup.
A Citigroup spokeswoman said the firm's relationship with Kushner Companies was not connected to Kushner's White House role. He was among the Trump campaign members involved in a controversial July 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer who emails suggested promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
