Miami – Citi was named Latin America Bond House of the Year by International Financing Review (IFR) as part of their 2018 awards. In addition, IFR recognized Citi as Emerging Markets Bond House of the Year.
IFR is Thomson Reuters' leading financial industry publication, and its awards are among the most prestigious in the banking industry. The spread of awards across asset classes and geographies reinforces the external recognition Citi enjoys for being among the best universal banks in the world for its clients.
