History and Business
Citi has been operating in Pakistan since 1961 and has a highly respected Institutional Client Group (ICG) franchise through our successful delivery of innovative, highquality banking products and services to its clients. Citi has many 'firsts' to our credit, including launching the first credit card in Pakistan, pioneering consumer asset financing and introducing the first 24-hour, seven-days-per-week call center.
We have been at the forefront of the financial sector reform process and have been the lead bank in taking the Government to international capital markets, including issues of the first Foreign Currency Sukuk, the first 30-year U.S. dollar sovereign bond and the first equity offering in more than a decade.
We are also the leading bank in Pakistan for delivering Export Agency and Multilateral financing and have been instrumental in the development of Pakistan's market for derivatives and other treasury products.
