LONDON -- March 28, 2013

CitiFX Wire, Citi’s real-time news service for clients, had a record day on
March 25 in terms of hits (number of articles clicked and opened). Since the
start of the year, CitiFX Wire has seen 95% growth and its year-on-year growth
is currently running at more than 580%.

Content on the service is provided by CitiFX’s traders, strategists, technical
analysts, economists and a team of dedicated editors. Given CitiFX’s position
in the global FX market, the breadth of vision provided is unrivalled, and
CitiFX Wire provides a range of reports from short-term intraday commentary to
longer-term macro research, and also covers both G10 as well as onshore and
offshore emerging markets.

CitiFX Wire is disseminated on the bank’s trading platforms, its website and
through its mobile applications. In addition, clients can subscribe to receive
delayed content by email. Currently, around 750,000 emails are sent out every
week. CitiFX Wire is probably the most widely read institutional FX
information platform in the world, providing a valuable service for both the
bank’s staff and clients.

“We knew that we had a lot of valuable information in our system and CitiFX
Wire was set up to pull all of that together. Clients are now flocking to it
as it presents all of this information in real time in a single location. We
provide minute-by-minute commentary from our global traders, as well as longer
last research and analysis on macro trends and other developments. It is a
unique and powerful differentiator for our platforms,” says Simon Jones,
global head of FX e-trading.
