Citigroup is beefing up its capacity to serve clients interested in crypto assets. In an announcement on Thursday, November 18, the U.S.-based banking powerhouse plans to create 100 roles that will be focused on digital assets including cryptocurrencies and blockchain for its institutional division, Reuters reported.

With its planned hiring spree, Citigroup has joined other traditional banks in their efforts to try to tap the growing crypto sector. While the industry has been facing regulatory scrutiny lately, crypto-assets adoption continues to grow as both institutional and retail investors alike are increasingly turning to popular digital currencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) as a store of value and inflation hedge.

The bank also named Puneet Singhvi as its head of blockchain and digital assets for the institutional clients group (ICG) starting December 1, according to Coindesk. Prior to his new post, Singhvi was head of blockchain and digital assets at the bank's Global Markets team.

Under his new role, Singhvi will report to Citi’s head of business development for Institutional Clients Group Emily Turner. To assist Singhvi will be Shobhit Maini and Vasant Viswanathan who will be co-heads for blockchain and digital assets.

The new team will be housed in London, New York, Singapore, and Tel Aviv. Citi expects to finalize the hiring drive by the end of 2022, according to a company spokesperson.

“We are focused on assessing the needs of our clients in the digital asset space,” Citi said in a statement. “Prior to offering any products and services, we are studying these markets, as well as the evolving regulatory landscape and associated risks in order to meet our own regulatory frameworks and supervisory expectations.”

The bank also said that it will hire additional talent over the next several months. These positions will be scattered across its ICG businesses, functions, and the ICG Business Development team.

Aside from Citigroup, other financial behemoths have already made their moves into the crypto space. For instance, Goldman Sachs already launched a crypto-trading team, JPMorgan’s wealth management clients now have access to crypto funds, and Bank of America has started crypto research coverage.

The past 3 months has been hell for me. I lost $545,000 to a OMCMARKETS! These fraudulent company cleaned me off my hard earned money. They kept asking for more deposit and when I didn’t give in they stopped responding to my mails. I was desperate for a refund as I couldn’t pay my mortgage. I got the best Christmas gift in advance for myself and my kids being a single father. COINWALLETRECOUP DOT COM was able to recoup my invested capital in less than 12 working days. God does answer prayers. I am forever indebted to Mr Gary who oversaw the penetration experts who carried out a systematic hack into OMCMarkets database. I have also gone ahead to file complaints directly to the FCA and SEC. How can one not have a moral compassion, lack empathy and have a zero conscience to?!. Very pathetic and despicable. I have become a lot more circumspect because of my experience with OMCmarkets. Contact COINWALLETRECOUP DOT COM Thank me later.

I have been working for a year plus to get my credit to 700plus, I felt pretty bad when I checked there wasn’t any improvement. One delighted evening after I closed from work, I sketch through the internet trying to figure out how to bring up my score, I came across lot of articles/testimonies of different kind and one caught my attention speaking and recommending a particular hacking company named TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR. I quickly write out the details [email protected] or text; +1 (424) 307 4562 and contacted them; thereafter they replied and told me they are fully back in service. To cut the long story short they started with the repair and got my score to exactly 799 and remove all the negative items replacing them with awesome trade lines. Get in touch with them via the above contacts and get your credit perfectly fixed.
