Citi's 200 year history

Citibank opened for business in 1812, and since then, has been a major player in some of the world’s most innovative breakthroughs in banking, including the pioneering of the world’s first ATM. Over the last two centuries we have worked tirelessly to become one of the world’s leading international banks, developing new ways to make global banking easier. In the UK we were the first bank to launch 24 hour PC banking, allowing customers to view their balances from anywhere in the world. We didn’t stop there. We have been at the forefront of many innovations and now customers can view all of their overseas Citi accounts in one place, with one password, using our Global View of Accounts Service. This service is currently available in 15 countries and is to be introduced to other countries worldwide. It’s this fresh thinking and international approach to banking, that over the last 200 years has enabled us to constantly develop and improve our products and services, meaning Citibank customers can continue to enjoy the best possible banking experience.
