Citi Considering Sale of Japan Retail Banking Unit, WSJ Reports

Tuesday, 19 Aug 2014 01:01 PM

Citigroup Inc. is considering the sale of its retail-banking business in Japan, The Wall Street Journal said on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Citigroup is considering a possible auction for the sale, the Journal reported.

A sale will leave the bank to focus on its corporate banking, investment banking and trading business in Japan, the report said.

The bank has been scaling down its global operations ever since the financial crisis. It said in December 2012 it was withdrawing from consumer banking in Pakistan, Paraguay, Romania, Turkey and Uruguay.

Citi was not immediately available for comment.
