By nature, clients of the Private Bank are progress makers who strive to improve the world we live in.

Among their priorities are protecting the environment, contributing to a more equitable society and raising standards of corporate behavior.

They pursue these goals by many means, such as entrepreneurship, philanthropy and advocacy.

Increasingly, they are also choosing to do so via their portfolios. In common with the Private Bank and the wider Citi, they believe that private capital can and should be used to effect positive change.

This principle is at the heart of Investing with Purpose (IwP), our approach to investing in a manner that aligns with your personal values while maintaining quality and improving investment outcomes. 

 

Our offering of sustainable investments comprises managed opportunities, alternative investments and capital markets strategies. Whether you seek exposure to individual investments or wish to build entire core and opportunistic portfolios aligned to your values, we can help you realize your sustainability goals.

We enable investors to pursue simultaneous societal change and competitive financial returns.

How we serve you
Portfolios built around you
IwP is the natural extension of our years of customizing portfolios for our clients.

We begin with an in-depth understanding of your sustainability goals and preferences and implement them with investments that meet your risk and return characteristics.

Our robust platform comprises opportunities across all asset classes. The Private Bank also offers self-directed sustainable investments in order to meet risk profile requirements and thematic preferences such as renewable energy or clean water.

Moreover, we provide access to investments such as green and social bonds that have a clearly defined use of proceeds.

If you seek thematic investments, we can create this exposure by adding an opportunistic/thematic tilt to either a traditional core portfolio or a core portfolio comprising broad environmental, social and governance (ESG) managers.

Institutional-caliber analytics
We to help ensure your investments align with, your sustainability and risk/return priorities.

These include asset allocation optimized to reflect your goals, a gap analysis that scores your portfolio against your specified benchmark(s), and ongoing assessment of risks from biases in your portfolio.

We offer these across all your holdings at Citi and elsewhere.*

Our culture of sustainability
Citigroup is a long-time advocate of sustainability and inclusion practices in the financial sector and in society more broadly.

In the years since Citi joined the UN Environmental Finance Initiative in 1997, we have co-founded the Equator Principles, Green Bond Principles, and Poseidon Principles.

We also led the way in our industry as the first US financial services signatory of various global initiatives and supported the Business Roundtable Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation.

Our external and internal initiatives equally reflect our commitment to social progress, a chief component of which, in our view is expanding opportunities to low- and moderate-income and marginalized communities.

We are honored to have been named by the Wall Street Journal as a top five S&P 500 company for diversity and inclusion, and to be cited on numerous best-of lists around the globe for civic engagement, diversity and inclusion.
