  • Citi FinTech & The Age of the Customer

    By Linda Duncombe, Chief Marketing Officer, Citi FinTech October 23, 2017 02:45 PM

    Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to witness digital transformation first-hand and have long been impressed by the awesome power customers wield. When I joined Citi FinTech about 18 months ago, I was excited to be part of a customer-centric, Silicon Valley-style team serving as a spearhead for Citi’s Global Consumer Bank. Our new features and capabilities are driven by honest, everyday engagement with and feedback from our customers. Recently, I spoke at Efma’s Banking Innovation Forum in Toronto and shared with the conference participants a few of the lessons we’ve learned.

  • Kindergarten to College: Placing Higher Education within Reach

    By José Cisneros, San Francisco Treasurer and Bob Annibale, Global Director of Citi Inclusive Finance October 19, 2017 04:00 PM

    One in three San Francisco children are born into families with almost no savings. However, when families save as little as $500 for higher education, their children are three times more likely to go to college.

    Six years ago, we set out to do the inconceivable: collaborate to develop a platform to support a program that would enable every family in the San Francisco public school system to put money away for their children’s education. To achieve this goal, Citi collaborated with the City and County of San Francisco, and the San Francisco Unified School District, to launch Kindergarten to College (K2C) -- the first publicly funded, universal children’s savings account program in the United States.

  • A Conversation with Cities: Mayors on Closing Gaps in Infrastructure & Economic Opportunity

    By Ed Skyler, Executive Vice President for Global Public Affairs, Citi and Chairman of the Citi Foundation October 16, 2017 01:00 PM

    Citi estimates that $59 trillion will need to be spent on infrastructure globally over the next 15 years, a staggering figure that speaks to how much work needs to be done to shore up existing infrastructure and build additional capacity to keep up with urban growth. While the needs are immense, investment in infrastructure in the U.S. at the federal level has fallen to just 1.4% of GDP, and local governments are being challenged to meet the needs of their residents with increasingly limited resources.

  • Our Commitment to Women’s Economic Empowerment through a Diverse Supplier Network

    By Javette Hines, Director, Supply Chain Development, Inclusion and Sustainability, Enterprise Supply Chain, Citi September 29, 2017 04:00 PM

    The value of diversity to our business extends throughout our value chain, from our employees to our clients, our customers and our suppliers. Over the past several years, we’ve achieved significant progress in promoting diversity across our supplier base through initiatives led by Citi’s Supply Chain Development, Inclusion and Sustainability Program. However, we are continually looking for ways to increase diversity among our supplier base across the globe, and to help drive economic empowerment for women through our business activities and operations. Fortunately, Citi has a unique model that has kept supplier diversity and sustainability intrinsically linked for almost a decade. This integrated approach has helped to ensure that awareness, education and training in support of inclusion, human rights, and environmental sustainability remain firmly embedded in all of our sourcing efforts.
