Citibank is a global bank and a subdivision of Citigroup, one of the largest financial institutions in the world. As a result, Citi Australia combines the global knowledge of a worldwide financial presence with the local knowledge of what makes the Australian mortgage market tick.
The first foreign bank to be granted a full banking license in Australia, Citibank has been here in full since 1985, but the company's history in Australia stretches much further back than that, having first applied to open a branch in 1916 – they later opened a representative office in 1926, nearly 100 years ago.
It offers a full range of financial services products, including transaction accounts to home loans, personal loans, and credit cards.
As you might expect from such an established institution, Citi has a wide variety of home loan products available to interested borrowers.
