History[edit]

Trilantic was formed in 2009 by five founding partners, all of whom had worked together at Lehman Brothers Merchant Banking (“LBMB”).[9][10] LBMB was founded in 1986 during the 1980s leveraged buyout boom as the private equity arm of Lehman Brothers.[11] In April 2009, Trilantic acquired LBMB out of the bankruptcy estate of Lehman Brothers with the support of Reinet Investments S.C.A, a Luxembourg securitization vehicle controlled by the Rupert family and listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.[12]
