Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. – Citi announced the opening of its new offices at the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), Abu Dhabi's international financial center.
H.E. Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, ADGM Chairman, attended the inauguration ceremony, joining Citi executives David Livingstone, CEO for Europe, Middle East and Africa; Atiq Rehman, CEO for Middle East and Africa; and Elissar Farah Antonios, Cluster Head for UAE, Iraq and Levant.
"Citi continues to support the UAE's growth and progress by investing in the country's robust financial sector," said Livingstone. "We are delighted to deploy our best-in-class global capabilities out of ADGM, which strengthens our presence in Abu Dhabi, for the benefit of our clients and partners."
Citi's ADGM branch, located in ADGM Square Al Sila Tower, will provide cutting-edge liquidity management services to clients establishing regional treasury centers in the UAE, and will offer the full range of Citi's institutional banking capabilities.
