What our clients say
We serve a community of exceptional people. Hear what they say about the Private Bank.
“If anyone wants to exchange ideas about what it takes to run a successful family business, I’m always open to it. While we believe we’re doing things right, there’s always room to improve. And maybe some of what we’re doing are things that other families could improve upon.”
“Citi is the best Private Bank I have ever seen and I can compare directly to two of your major competitors. There’s something that’s more personalized about Citi, more human. I appreciate your arranging for clients to meet clients.”
“Citi Private Bank has consistency. I left my last bank because there was no consistency. I need to call someone who understands. The people you have define who you are, and the people at Citi fit in with a culture that cares about its clients.”
“There’s plenty of places that you can work with to invest your money, but I have a really strong connection to Citi and feel that they do care about us and our family and what we’re interested in, what our priorities are.”
“What Citi Private Bank does well is to help connect you with like-minded people. There are not many people that you can talk to about wealth management, how to prepare your kids for managing the responsibility of wealth.”
"The Private Bank has quality people and platform and that is because they have clearly made it a priority to serve the law industry specifically. Various competitors offer many of the same things, but not with the detail that the Private Bank has done.”
