Jane Fraser, who has been the CEO for just about a year, has started overhauling many of the bank’s businesses for which Citibank was known for centuries.
Citigroup Projects less Profitability Due to Increased Expense
for Strategy Shift
In an investor presentation on Wednesday, Citigroup Inc. said the profitability will be affected as the
bank pursues a shift in business strategy that will entail raised expenses in the short term. The
ROTCE or Return on Tangible Common Shareholders Equity over the next 3-5 years will be 11%
to 12%, and last year it was 13.4% compared to 23% posted by JPMorgan Chase.
Focus on high-yielding businesses
Jane Fraser, who has been the CEO for just about a year, has started overhauling many of the bank’s
businesses for which Citibank was known for centuries.
She announced Citibank’s plan of exiting retail banking operations in around 14 countries globally.
This also includes the Citi franchisee in Mexico, which is home to the largest branch network of the
bank. The bank would now focus its investment on high-yielding businesses.
In her opening presentation on investor day of the bank, she said that the new strategy is not a quick
fix and requires a multi-year solution. The investor meeting was switched to the virtual format after
two executives tested positive for COVID -19.
