    BankUnited is a Miami Lakes-based savings and loan association, founded in 1984, that specialized in lending money to foreigners who were buying real estate in Florida. In 2009, the bank was saddled with too many bad mortgages and had to be bailed out by US financial regulators and private investors after failing to raise capital or sell itself, as mandated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. As part of the bailout, FDIC transferred control of the bank to a joint venture of investment firms in exchange for an infusion of millions of dollars to shore up the banks balance sheet. The government agency took losses of nearly $6 billion. Its owners now include billionaire and restructuring specialist Wilbur L. Ross, Jr., Blackstone Group, The Carlyle Group, Centerbridge Partners, LeFrak Organization, Inc., The Wellcome Trust, Greenaap Investments Ltd., and East Rock Endowment Fund. Under a holding company, BankUnited, Inc., the re-launched bank debuted on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in January 2011 using the ticker symbol BKU. As of 2015, John A. Kanas served as its chief executive officer and chairman and Bank United had returned to profitability and grown into the largest South Florida bank by total assets. It specializes in commercial lending to real estate developers in Florida and New York. MK
