Citigroup is ranked 4th by assets on the list of largest banks in the United States. It forms the Big Four Banks in the United States along with JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo. Citigroup was ranked 29th in size on the Fortune 500 list in 2016. The company as we know came into existence by the amalgamation of Citicorp and Travelers Group in 1998. But the Travelers Group was spun off in 2002, making Citigroup the owner Citicorp and is the holding company for Citibank and other international subsidiaries.

The bank has over 200 million customer accounts with business spread in 160 countries. Citigroup suffered enormous losses in the financial crisis of 2007-2008. The U.S. government then rescued the company in a heavy stimulus package.
Citigroup- Its formation
A number of companies were involved in the making of Citigroup as we know. It all started on June 16, 1812, when New York State chartered the City Bank of New York with $2 million capital. Samuel Osgood became the first president of the company and the bank opened its doors on September 14, 1812. The company changed its name to The National City Bank of New York in 1865. It happened after joining the new U.S. National Banking System. This also made it the largest American Bank by 1895.
The bank became the first contributor to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1913. The same year, it opened the first overseas branch of a U.S. Bank in Buenos Aires. In 1918, it purchased the International Banking Corporation making it the first American bank to cross $1 billion in assets. It became the largest commercial bank in the world in 1929. The bank soon became a leading innovator in financial services.
It was the first major U.S. Bank which gave compound interest on savings: unsecured personal loans; negotiable certificate of deposit and customer checking accounts.
On March 11, 2015, Citi passed its stress test which allowed the company to raise its dividends to 5% per share.
On June 23, 2016, the Federal Reserve passed the Citi again for the second time. This meant Citi could triple its dividend to 16% per share.
