As we ease past the pandemic and see international travel open up and major economies like the UAE enter a period of renewal and opportunity, knowing which bank is exactly right for you is more important than ever.

In these pivotal times, consumers are seeking top-notch overall support, meaningful benefits, and a great personalised service to manage their wealth. In short, a bank isn’t just a bank anymore – it needs to be a trusted partner that offers an excellent experience wherever you happen to be in the world.

This is where Citigold is shaking up the game. With a range of incredible client benefits, Citi’s global network is helping take care of all its UAE customers’ banking needs – meaning they can enjoy the same Citigold privileges and exclusive services that they do at home.

Here are the top three reasons why Citigold is a superb banking experience and simply a cut above the rest.

There’s no better feeling than knowing you’ve got a team of experts supporting you in your financial goals and day-to-day banking needs – that’s where Citigold is standing apart. Citi’s wealth management partnership begins with really knowing the customer and aligning with their goals.

A dedicated Relationship Manager based in the UAE is supported by a team of financial advisors and wealth planners to provide insights and guidance to help clients stay on track. The Relationship Manager will work closely with you across the UAE, Singapore, and London/Jersey to understand your unique investment management goals and helps you achieve them.

At the same time, a Service Relationship Manager partners with your Relationship Manager to ensure you get outstanding service and support whenever you need it, while a Treasury Sales Officer offers updates on foreign exchange markets and Citi foreign exchange forecasts. You’ve also got the comfort of having an experienced Insurance Specialist to provide customised financial solutions to help you protect what matters most. In short, Citi has your back.
