As American philosopher Henry David Thoreau observed, wealth is the ability to fully experience life. For you, that could mean listening to the crash of waves as you ride a surfboard in Tahiti. For someone else, it could be the roar of a sports car as it zips down a scenic road in the Alps. Wealth, in short, is different strokes for different people.

If you are a high-net-worth individual (HNWI) or an ultra-HNWI, it is all about making the most of your aspirations, setting and achieving goals in style, and forging your own path.

To make your wealth work for you both onshore and offshore, Citigold ticks all the right boxes. Moreover, it is the gold standard for personalised wealth solutions to meet your financial goals.

Here is a look at how a Citigold account can nurture and protect your investments while you realise your dreams:

Tailor-made for you

The crucial first step in wealth management is getting to know you and your needs. When you sign up for a Citigold account, a dedicated relationship manager, who becomes your personal financial consultant, will help draw up a bespoke investment strategy for you. This is based on your short-, medium- and long-term goals, as well as accessible cash and savings required for future expenses, such as children's education, retirement, and personal ambitions. Over time, it is inevitable that both your personal circumstances and market conditions will change, but the relationship manager will conduct regular reviews of your investment portfolio to ensure that your plans remain firmly on track.

Dedicated international team

While your dedicated relationship manager is based in the UAE, they will also work closely with offshore centres in Singapore, London and Jersey to further your investment goals. You also get access to product specialists such as an investment consultant, insurance specialist and treasury specialist who will support you with updates on foreign exchange markets and Citi foreign exchange forecasts. It is a team effort that guarantees all your financial and banking needs are taken care of.

Insights that matter
