  Nationwide Chooses Citi for Custody for over £10bn of Assets

Business Wire

LONDON -- July 11, 2013

Citi has been appointed custodian of the Nationwide Building Society's assets
held in Euroclear and DTC. These assets, worth over £10bn, were migrated to
Citi on June 7 2013. Nationwide Building Society is the world’s largest
building society and has around 15 million members.

Citi is providing custody services through its Securities and Fund Services
London global window. Citi's combination of custody and existing cash
management services provided to the Nationwide Building Society will help both
reduce costs and streamline operations for Nationwide and will enhance the
deep connection which already exists between the two institutions.

"We are delighted that Nationwide, the world’s largest building society, has
decided to entrust its Euroclear and DTC assets to Citi. This represents an
endorsement of our product range and allows Nationwide to focus on its core
business and adds value for their members," said Sanjiv Sahwney, EMEA head of
Securities and Funds Services.

Citi's global custody services provide a one-stop service for transaction
settlement, safekeeping, administration, and reporting of global investments
through a single access point and a consistent product offering.

"We already use Citi for cash management processing, issuing and paying
services which are critical functions required by the Treasury Division in the
management of Nationwide’s assets and liabilities. We are therefore delighted
that we have been able to extend our relationship with Citi's CTS division to
also include global custody of a significant proportion of the Group’s
Securities holdings. The streamlining of service provision will improve
Treasury Operations efficiency and demonstrates our commitment to ensuring
that we source services from the best providers," said Paul Gould, Head of
Operations and Strategic Development, Nationwide Treasury Division.
