Awards for Excellence 2012: Best Emerging Markets Investment Bank

Awards for Excellence 2012

Best Emerging Markets Investment Bank: Citi

Also nominated: Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and HSBC

Its full suite of commercial and investment banking products as well as the authenticity of its local presence in key emerging markets are mantras frequently recited by Citi’s senior bankers. As most Citi executives are quick to point out, the bank boasts a local presence in 100 countries – more than any other global investment bank – while conducting business in 160 in total.
