About Us

Citi in Romania

Citi is one of the world’s leading largest financial institutions, with a heritage of over 200 years, serving more than 200 million clients in 160 countries. Our history can be traced back as far as 1812, when the financial institution was first established as the bank for New Yorkers, when we took the name “City Bank of New York”.

We were later renamed the First National City Bank of New York as we expanded and allowed more people to experience the full benefit of our services. By 1894 the bank had grown to become the largest U.S. bank, and by 1902 we had expanded further, entering the Asian financial market.

But that wasn’t the end of our growth and by 1930 we became the largest international bank with 100 offices, spanning some 23 countries, all over the world. In 1976 the name was changed to Citibank and the first Central and Eastern European location was opened in Hungary in 1985. Today the bank is present in every major European country.

Citi has been present in Romania since 1996 and provides high-quality financial products and services to large national and multinational companies, small and middle enterprises, the public sector and non-profit organizations. Capitalizing on Citi’s global experience and network, we strive to create the best outcomes for our corporate clients with solutions that are simple, innovative and responsible.
