A bank can always plan for the worst. But it demonstrates its skills and understanding of the market and clients from the way it responds and keeps its business humming when the worst actually happens.

Citi operates in Singapore through three entities: Citibank Singapore, Citibank NA Singapore branch and Citicorp Investment Bank (Singapore). Together, they reported net income of about S$1.1 billion ($810 million) in 2020, up about 17% from the previous year.

Its recipe for success is its one team approach – or what the management calls One Citi – to make sure all business lines are firing on all cylinders through collaboration across teams and markets.
