LONDON -- April 16, 2013

CitiFX Pulse, Citi’s award-winning corporate foreign exchange electronic
execution platform has been re-launched as Pulse 2.0. The improved product,
which updates Pulse 1.0 that was launched at the end of 2009, incorporates
comprehensive improvements and upgrades across the entire platform.

For example, Pulse 2.0 is now able to offer a significantly enhanced risk
exposure management module and also a new structured options facility, both
delivered through an entirely re-configured interface.

“CitiFX Pulse is, and has always been, about corporate foreign exchange
hedging and now more so than ever as the new exposure management module
provides our end-users with the ultimate degree of control across their global
businesses,” said Yi Hahn Chin, CitiFX Pulse Global Product Manager.

The updated exposure management module is one of the many pre-trade services
CitiFX Pulse offers and represents added value for clients that few rivals can
match. It is ideal for multinational corporations as they can track cash flow
and balance sheet exposure across subsidiaries, ensuring better transparency
of any hedging programme. It also offers instantaneous hedging across multiple
entities.

The structured options product offers corporate clients a user-friendly
interface but one that is backed by the most sophisticated options pricing API
in the market. A user can get prices for basic structures across multiple
tenors both quickly and clearly.

CitiFX Pulse provides access to 700 currency pairs both onshore and through
regional hubs in almost 80 different countries with consolidated windows,
reports and money management. Clients can deal in spot, swaps, NDFs and
forwards, and, through the live rates panel, can resize and position up to 24
different dealing panes.
