Citi has had a presence in Ireland since 1965 and was one of the first foreign banks to open an office in the country. From its offices in North Wall Quay in Dublin, Citi Ireland services clients across 160 countries and is the Head Office for Citibank Europe plc.
Citibank Europe Plc
Citibank Europe plc has been based in Ireland since 1988 and, since January 2016, is Citi’s single EU-passported bank, with branches in 22 countries. It is regulated by the European Central Bank.
The businesses covered by Citibank Europe include Markets and Securities Services, Banking Capital Markets and Advisory, Treasury and Trade Solutions, and Private Bank.
Institutional Clients Group
The businesses operating in Ireland are all part of the Institutional Client Group (ICG) and include Treasury and Trade Solutions, Markets and Securities Services, Private Bank, Custody and Fund Services, Global Subsidiaries Group, Corporate and Investment Banking, Capital Markets, and Citi Commercial Bank. Citi’s leading EMEA Aviation leasing business is also based in Ireland.
Citi Ireland also has a Citi Solution Centre, one of four CSCs in EMEA, providing Operations and Middle Office services across the region.
Citi’s first Innovation Lab was established in Dublin in 2009. It was the first R&D center for a financial services company in Ireland and is dedicated to support the creation of the next wave of financial products and solutions for Citi’s clients.
The Innovation Lab operates independently from the business—not only to provide a safe and contained environment for experimentation, but also to enable the lab to focus on long-term consumer and technology trends and to experiment with a variety of solutions based on the range of insights derived from interactions with clients.
Corporate Social Responsibility Work
Community Affairs is a deeply embedded part of the culture in Citi Ireland. For the past 20 years, Citi Ireland has partnered with Junior Achievement to help young people reach their full potential through access to entrepreneurship and employability training. To date, almost 1,000 Citi volunteers have taught Junior Achievement programs in to 18,000 students in Ireland.
Citi Ireland has been working with Enactus since 2017. Enactus is a global organization that works with university students to develop social entrepreneurship by partnering business leaders with the students to work on projects to tackle community issues. Each year, teams from universities around Ireland take part in Citi’s Pathways to Progress program. They are provided with training, mentoring and seed funding to develop entrepreneurial ideas to tackle social issues facing young people in disadvantaged communities.
Additionally, Citi Ireland works with Business in the Community and supports their programs for helping schoolchildren in disadvantaged areas with reading and math, and is also involved in mentoring programs for jobseekers.
Commitment to diversity is core to Citi’s values. Citi Ireland has a number of affinity networks that promote diversity and inclusion—CitiWomen, CitiDisABILTY, CitiRoots, CitiPride, and Families Matter Network. Citi Ireland also partners with a number of external organizations to promote diversity and inclusion. Citi Ireland is proud to partner with Paralympics Ireland and sponsor two Irish Paralympians—swimmer Ellen Keane and runner Jason Smyth.
