About Citigroup Inc. (Asia)

Global giant

Although its official name is Citigroup Inc., the global banking group based in New York and known throughout the world was rebranded as simply "Citi" back in 2007. Citi has over 200 million customer accounts in more than 100 countries around the world. Citi's main business divisions are consumer banking, the institutional clients group, and global cards. Citi's commercial and consumer businesses are carried out by the consumer banking group, which includes U.S. and international retail banking (offered by Citibank, CitiFinancial, Primerica Financial Services and Citibank Direct), U.S. consumer lending (including student loans, real estate lending and auto loans), international consumer finance, a commercial finance group (offering banking, leasing and commercial real estate), and a microfinance group. The global consumer group is one of Citi's biggest revenue drivers, typically bringing in more than half of each year's Citi-wide earnings. The institutional clients group includes global banking services such as merger and acquisition advisory, debt, equity, restructuring and underwriting, as well as global capital markets, transaction services and alternative investments. The global cards business encompasses Citi's worldwide credit card business. Prior to its rebranding, Citi was revered as the world's largest banking and financial services group, but the financial storm in the recent past has not been kind to this global giant, which has seen billions of dollars wiped off its market value, endured tens of thousands of employees, been forced to take $45 billion in assistance from the U.S. government and had to resort to selling off assets, including its brokerage arm to long-time rival Morgan Stanley in January 2009.
