Capital markets strategies can play an integral part in building your globally diversified core portfolio.

They enable you to access particular markets, sectors and currencies, while targeting specific outcomes such as increased participation, yield generation and capital protection.

Our Capital Markets team combines institutional-level access to Citi’s full range of markets products globally with the Private Bank’s personalized service, giving you the best of both worlds.

We offer you advice and cutting-edge institutional execution covering equities, commodities, fixed income, foreign exchange, rates and hybrids.

Our strategies help you populate your allocation with appropriate investments, implement long-term themes and pursue tactical opportunities.

To mitigate your core portfolio risks, we can identify uncorrelated assets and implement hedges on specific positions.

We also provide advice and execution if you need to acquire, finance, hedge or dispose of strategic assets – liquid or illiquid – in a wide variety of asset classes and locations.

Whether you seek long-term exposure for your core portfolio or wish to trade in your opportunistic portfolio, we can provide the access, advice and execution that you require.

We deliver institutional-quality investment products and market insights to private clients with sophisticated needs.
