Capital Markets Origination

Citi's Capital Markets Origination business is the first choice among issuers for their underwriting needs due to its unmatched global footprint, diverse range of products and track record of executing transactions for its clients amid unprecedented market conditions. Issuers have turned to Citi for inaugural issuances, repeat business and their largest, landmark transactions, demonstrating the structuring and execution expertise to meet client needs.

In the equity capital markets over the last year, Citi has led the market both in terms of proceeds raised and innovation in the capital markets. Citi pioneered the development of tapping the equity markets for private equity capital; currently leads the SPAC market, having raised the two largest SPACs ever in the US and Euro markets; and is a leader in developing alternative capital formats, notably and recently with sovereign wealth funds and hybrid execution formats, mixing private and public marketing efforts to achieve the largest financing packages ever.

Named International Financing Review's Global Loan House, Global Investment Grade Bond House, and Emerging Market Bond House of 2008, Citi is the clear choice for debt capital markets transactions based on its continued underwriting leadership in transactions across a broad range of currencies and markets, displaying consistent dominance and success in navigating challenging fixed income conditions.

Our Capital Markets Origination business is organized around four major regions: the Americas, Europe/Middle East/Africa, Asia Pacific and Japan and works seamlessly to provide its clients with the highest quality advice, the most innovative solutions and the best execution globally and locally.
