Citibank South Africa established a presence in South Africa in 1958 and re-entered the country with a representative office that was converted to a full branch in July 1995.
Since then, we have grown to become the country’s largest foreign bank and the sixth largest commercial bank, with capital and reserves representing over one quarter of the capital of all foreign banks operating in the country.
We provide a broad range of financial products and services, including corporate finance, cash management, corporate and investment banking.
Citibank South Africa also provide treasury services such as foreign exchange, derivatives and trade finance to large local corporations and multinationals.
Citi Global Markets Pty Ltd is Citi’s equities trading arm in South Africa, which commenced business in July 2001 and now commands a healthy market share.
We are committed to the economic transformation process in South Africa, which incorporates market opportunities and growing customer segments.
We recognize that by embracing a philosophy of Black Economic Empowerment, we have the opportunity to play a significant role in the upliftment of historically disadvantaged communities.
Citi has received an A rating on its audited BEE Scorecard from the Financial Sector Charter Council.
