We are delighted to announce the appointment of the Global Head of Private Banking for Citi Global Wealth Management.

We created Citi Global Wealth Management earlier this year with a clear mission: to be the very best for all of Citi’s wealth clients throughout the world. We believe that together, the Private Bank and our other wealth businesses make an even more powerful force.

Global Wealth Management combines an unrivaled global network, access to Citi’s institutional resources, and, above all, our incredible people. And by investing even more in our technology and our talent, we believe we can be better still.

But while we’re stronger together, we’re also determined to retain and build upon those things that we know you value most. These include the Private Bank’s distinctive brand, its close partnership with Citi’s institutional organization, and its unique community of clients.

To reinforce this, I am delighted to inform you that Ida Liu will be our new Global Head of Private Banking.

Many of you already know Ida well from her outstanding leadership of the Private Bank in North America over the last two years. Ida originally joined the Private Bank in 2007 to create our Fashion, Media & Entertainment Group. She subsequently launched and led our North America Asian Clients Group and then became Global Market Manager for New York.

Throughout the last fourteen years, Ida has served our clients’ needs with total dedication and she has a proven track record of excellence. She and I will work closely together, and she will join our Global Wealth Management Leadership Team.

I am absolutely thrilled to have Ida leading our Private Bank. I know she will do a fantastic job in delivering the full benefits of Global Wealth Management to our Private Bank’s clients.

With warm regards,

Jim O’Donnell
Head of Citi Global Wealth Management
