  • Realizing the power and potential of a fantastic franchise

    By Stephen Bird, CEO, Global Consumer Banking, Citi August 01, 2017 03:15 PM

    Last week, I experienced one of the proudest moments in my nearly twenty years at Citi as I took the stage at Investor Day, our first in nine years, to share the story of the Global Consumer Bank’s transformation and growth.

    After holding a number of roles across the firm and leading our franchise in Asia for many years, I have the privilege today of leading the Global Consumer Bank. It is a fantastic franchise – a globally recognized brand; strong competitive positions in growth markets; best-in-class value propositions; leading digital capabilities; disciplined credit and expense management; and the most focused, talented team on the street. And it is critical to Citi’s future.

  • Building (and Scaling) a Global Partnership

    By Brandee McHale, President of the Citi Foundation and Director of Corporate Citizenship at Citi and Asheesh Advani, CEO of JA Worldwide July 19, 2017 01:00 PM

    ​No generation is feeling the impacts of the complex economic and social realities of today more than young people. As the largest youth population in history, one consistent struggle they face is persistent unemployment. Today, about one-third of youth worldwide are either unemployed, not in school, or not enrolled in a training or development program. How will these young people become the next generation of talented leaders without the necessary training and employment opportunities they deserve?

  • Citi Disappointed by Decision to Withdraw from Paris Agreement

    By Ed Skyler, Executive Vice President for Global Public Affairs, Citi June 02, 2017 11:00 AM

    We were outspoken in our support for the U.S. to remain in the Paris Climate Agreement and are disappointed President Trump chose to leave the pact. We remain very focused on our own efforts to protect the environment, most notably our commitment to finance $100 billion in clean energy, infrastructure and technology projects which will help build a more sustainable economy.
