Citigroup posts good revenue amid banking sector crisis

Citi’s revenues that topped expectations come after a quarter in which banks faced one of their most tumultuous periods in recent finance and banking history. Commenting on this, Citi CEO Jane Fraser said in a press release:

“Citi delivered strong operating performance, showing good revenue growth and expense discipline despite the tumultuous environment for banks. Our robust and well-managed balance sheet was a source of strength for our clients and we continue making progress in executing our strategy focused on our five core interconnected businesses while simplifying and transforming the firm.”

Citi’s institutional-focused integrated cash management and trade services unit, Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS), performed “extremely well,” Fraser noted.

According to the Citi chief exec, the division saw significant growth on its non-interest revenue, with this down to a strong showing in cross-border activity. The bank Fixed Income sector also recorded its third best quarter over the past decade, while cards businesses were also signaling new momentum.
