MEET THE BOSS: Interview with Robert Annibale, Global Director of Citi Microfinance (Part One of a Two Part Series)

I think what distinguishes Citi from other providers is that we really deliver locally. Almost all the financing that we arrange is in the local market and local currency or it provides the hedging and structuring necessary to achieve local funding for MFIs. Perhaps Citi having a dedicated microfinance group, and the extensive number of countries where we are present in the same local markets, are of greatest value to our relationships.
