London is one of the major cities that is a part of the Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress initiative. This global program helps prepare urban youth to thrive in today’s economy and connects them to opportunities that help them reach their full potential and contribute to the vibrant economic centres in which they live.
One of our flagship Pathways to Progress partners is Career Ready, a leading charity that links employers with schools and colleges to open up the world of work to young people. The Citi Foundation has supported Career Ready since it launched in the UK in 2002, and provides funding to help build a “whole school” approach to career preparedness.
Supporting London Youth Career Development
Citi staff regularly volunteer to deliver the Career Ready program
young people take part in four-week paid internships at Citi every year
As more investors look to embed environmental and social standards into their investment decisions, Citi’s London office continues to find new ways to address these issues globally.
Citi recently acted as joint lead manager on a $300 million three-year bond issuance with the International Finance Facility for Immunisation (IFFIm). Launched in 2006, IFFIm ensures vaccine coalition Gavi can deliver its life-saving immunisation programs to poorer nations faster—saving lives and protecting the estimated 1.7 million children who die each year from preventable diseases. These bonds provide a perfect platform for markets to support immunisations and reduce the incidence of disease across the developing countries.
