Equals Group PLC, the e-banking and international payments group, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a global relationship with Citi Commercial Bank.
The Group will leverage Citi’s extensive global footprint to enhance its current product offering and bring even more efficiencies to current processes. Citi has local settlement and clearance capabilities for payments in over 90 countries, which together will improve the customer experience through faster settlement and deliver improved economics for Equals in terms of reduced transaction costs. The partnership will also significantly increase the number of currencies Equals is able to offer clients, with more than 135 being available on Citi’s WorldLink platform.
Commenting on the new arrangements, Rory Clark, Equals Group Plc’s relationship manager at Citi Commercial Bank, said: “Citi is excited to be supporting the growth aspirations of Equals Group Plc through a combination of our global network and market-leading foreign exchange and cash management solutions.”
James Hickman, Equals Group CCO, commented: “We are delighted to have partnered with a global banking brand like Citi. This demonstrates our desire for innovation and commitment to providing best in class services to our clients. Partnering with Citi not only allows us to offer local clearing and settlement across the globe, but their WorldLink platform also has many other exciting pieces of functionality which will create efficiencies for the Group and our clients.”
