Citi’s Corporate Banking teams service the needs of the world’s largest corporations, financial institutions and governments. Corporate bankers build close relationships with their clients in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of the complex financial issues they face. As a result they can deliver a full array of tailored solutions, from capital markets, loans and derivatives to cash management, foreign exchange and trade finance. We solve clients’ domestic and cross-border needs using our global network to deliver solutions right down to local levels.

Success Profile
