Latin America’s best bank for markets 2017: Citi
Awards for Excellence 2017
Citi wins the award for best bank for markets in Latin America. The US bank maintains a very wide presence in the region and is a strong competitor across the board. Led by regional head of markets and securities services, Jaime Roblesgil, the bank has been focusing on building up its controls in recent years, in alignment with its global practices. Coordination is vital. Citi has 530 personnel operating in 21 countries in the region (as well as in Miami and New York).
The bank faces a broad array of risks as it is among the top three players in nearly all products in the region and it expects to gain additional share as its global competitors continue to exit markets or retrench. The bank is a leader in FX, rates, commodities and equities.
For example, Citi’s clients have access to 24-hour trading in 130 currency pairs in the world through trading hubs located in New York, London and Singapore.
