In Q2 2022, net interest income saw a jump due to strong volumes across Institutional Clients Group and Personal Banking and Wealth Management.

“While the world has changed since our Investor Day in March, our strategy has not, and we are executing it with discipline and urgency.

Trading volatility continued to create strong corporate client activity for us, driving revenue growth of 25% in Markets. While economic sentiment clearly impacted Investment Banking and Wealth Management, we continue to invest in these businesses, and we like where they are headed,” Jane Fraser, CEO of Citigroup, commented.

Across the Personal Banking segment in the US, Citi witnessed decent growth, mainly due to a jump of approximately 10% in branded cards.

In the quarterly report, Fraser also highlighted the impact of challenging macroeconomic and geopolitical conditions. According to Citigroup’s CEO, the company aims to generate significant capital for its investors.

“In a challenging macro and geopolitical environment, our team delivered solid results and we are in a strong position to weather uncertain times, given our liquidity, credit quality, and reserve levels. I am particularly pleased with our capital strength,” Fraser said.
