Malaysia: Citigroup Tops Global Custodian Emerging Markets Survey


Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C), February 03, 2006, Kuala Lumpur -- For the seventh consecutive year, Citigroup has been awarded a “Top Rated” ranking in the Cross-Border category for Malaysia in the Global Custodian Emerging Markets Survey 2005. Citigroup was also ranked “Top Rated” for Domestic Custody services.

“The survey results underline Citigroup’s commitment to our clients and our continuing investments in leading edge technology”, said Sanjeev Nanavati, Country Head of Corporate and Investment Banking for Malaysia. “We have a strong team that is focused in delivering innovative solutions and services to our clients – an excellent example of this is the Agency Clearing and Settlement product we offer to local brokers who want to outsource their back office processing to us.”

The Global Custodian survey measures agent banks on the quality of service they provide both on a cross border and a local basis. Information for the third party survey is gathered during three months of interviews, which are sent to global custodians, brokerage firms, investment managers, insurance companies and their financial institutions.
