Citigroup is the third largest banking institution in the United States; alongside JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo, it is one of the Big Four banking institutions of the United States.[25] It is considered a systemically important bank by the Financial Stability Board and is commonly cited as being too big to fail. It is one of the nine global investment banks in the Bulge Bracket.

Citigroup is ranked 33rd on the Fortune 500 as of 2021.[26] Citigroup has approximately 200 million customer accounts and does business in more than 160 countries.[22] It has 204,000 employees,[22] although it had 357,000 employees before the financial crisis of 2007–2008,[27] when it was bailed out by a massive stimulus package from the U.S. government.[28]

In 2020 it was one of the largest securities services providers, having over $23.6 trillion in assets under custody (AUC) [29]

In February 2021 CEO Michael Corbat was replaced by Jane Fraser, who became the first woman CEO of a Big Four bank.[30]
