Our Rich History

Our Rich History

As we celebrate our 120th Anniversary, let’s look back at our rich history
and what we have accomplished.

It all started in 1902 at 1 Prince Street

Citi was the first American bank to set up a branch in the thriving
port city of Singapore.

Our banking journey

With just a handful of employees, our banking journey began with rubber and tin financing.

Transforming a Nation in the 80s

As Singapore was rapidly growing in the 1980s, Citi helped transform the nation from a trading hub to a global financial centre.
