Citi plots next stage of development in Asia

Citi’s Asia-Pacific business is the ultimate test of its universal banking model. New regional CEO Francisco Aristeguieta knows he needs to build on its strong component parts, not just to maintain its position in Asia, but to push the bank forward globally.

Talk about hitting the ground running. Just four months after taking over as Citi’s CEO for Asia Pacific, Francisco Aristeguieta had to present his vision and strategy for the group’s regional ambitions to the board at meetings in Beijing and Hong Kong last October.

This was no easy task. First, Aristeguieta, a Venezuelan national, was not just new to the job, he was also new to the region, having spent most of his career with Citi in Latin America. Second, he had taken over his new role from rising star Stephen Bird, who relocated to New York to run Citi’s global consumer banking business.
