Geithner joins fellow Warburg Pincus executives, co-chief executive, Joseph P. Landy and managing directors, Christopher C. Gunther, Peter R. Kagan, James W. Wilson, and Daniel Zilberman, all of whom have established credit lines through JP Morgan, according to the New York Times.

The move is common practice in the industry: To show both confidence and common interest between investors and management, private-equity executives pour millions in personal investments into new funds, according to Bloomberg, which first reported the news.

Geithner helped orchestrate JP Morgans buyout of Bear Stearns in 2008 with the help of a $29 billion loan from the New York Fed, which he managed at the time. As Treasury Secretary, he had a hand guiding Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and AIG through the crisis, which was catalyzed by a glut of subprime loans in the US market.
