Submitting a complaint

You can submit a complaint free of charge to us which will be handled in an independent manner by our complaints team, or you can discuss your complaint with your private banker, associate banker or investment counsellor. Contact details for our complaints teams in each of the countries in which we provide services are listed in the drop-down menu below. Please note that for clients that receive services from Citibank Europe plc, Italy Branch, Citibank (Switzerland) AG and Citibank N.A. Swiss Branches the process for submitting a complaint to us is slightly different and further information can be found in the drop-down menu below.

When submitting a complaint, please include the following details:

  • Your name
  • Your address, phone number and email address
  • Nature of complaint
  • Name of the department or person to whom the complaint is addressed (if known)
  • Date of the complaint
  • Any documents or emails that may support your complaint.

Please provide us with as much information as possible when submitting your complaint to help us resolve your complaint as quickly and efficiently as possible.
