Awards for Excellence 2013: Best Emerging markets bank

Good management has allowed the bank to position itself across retail, corporate and investment banking.

Awards for Excellence 2013

Best Emerging markets bank: Citi

Also shortlisted: HSBC and Standard Chartered

No other emerging market banker launches an international sales pitch, using their corporate mantra, with as much relish as a Citi executive.
