Adding Diverse Leadership Voices
In 2020, the Head of Diversity & Inclusion, the CEO of CITI EQUITY and the Head of Human Capital joined the operating committee, and CITI EQUITY welcomed two new members to its Board of Directors. These appointments bring important perspectives and expertise to the highest levels of the firm.
We take our fiduciary obligations seriously, and we expect our people to treat all clients fairly and equitably—clients’ interests come first. We’ve built our business model on the foundation of a strong risk-aware culture, prudent risk-taking and a strong governance framework.
Robust Compliance Framework
Firms are defined by the quality and rigor of their systems, training and oversight. We’ve designed our compliance framework to ensure that business operations stay compliant and that our employees are empowered to raise and resolve potential issues.
