Citigroup to Combine EMEA and Asian Consumer Segments

Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C) is in the spotlight after Reuters reported that the bank is combining its consumer banking segment in Asia with its consumer business in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). The combination should simplify Citigroup’s sprawling emerging market presence and boost its efficiency. Shares of the bank have fallen by 20% year-to-date and trade for just 0.58-times book value due to concerns of an emerging market recession and continued low interest rates. Of the 766 elite funds that we track, 101 of them owned $8.04 billion worth of Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C) shares on March 31, which accounted for 6.50% of the float.
