You’re the brains behind our work.
You’re ready to bring your knowledge from the classroom to the boardroom, and Citi wants to help you get there. Whether it’s honing your skills or building your network, we know that success can’t come without growth. Our programs equip you with the knowledge and training you need to play a valuable role on your team, and establish a long-term career here. At Citi, we value internal mobility, and career growth is not a question of if, but when.
Your time here will look something like this…
As a summer analyst on our team, you will work on live client engagements where you will independently run our models, develop recommendations, and prepare client materials. You will work on teams with both junior and senior bankers, encounter companies in multiple sectors, and see a wide variety of our clients’ most critical financial and strategic challenges. You will also work on the creation of new analytical content for our advisory work. Throughout, you will have a ringside view of a world-class global investment bank coming together to serve its clients.
We provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to succeed.
We are the Financial Strategy and Solutions Group (FSG), a corporate finance advisory team in Citi’s investment banking division. We deliver rigorous, data-driven, and actionable strategic corporate finance advice to Citi’s corporate, financial institution, and public sector clients globally, drawing on our expertise across sectors, markets, and products. Our services help win new business by differentiating Citi from its competitors, and play a key role in deepening the firm’s relationship with many of its largest and most sophisticated clients.
Who we are.
We are a multidisciplinary team of bankers in New York, London, and Hong Kong.

Our analysts and associates come from top universities with degrees in a wide variety of fields including economics, engineering, finance, mathematics, and statistics. Our diverse backgrounds enable us to build and maintain expertise in nearly every area of corporate finance.
What we do.
We help boards, CEOs, CFOs, and treasurers make better decisions on capital structure, credit ratings, shareholder distributions, risk management, capital allocation, funding strategy, and liquidity. We help them better understand what factors influence their stock price, and what they can do to improve it. We work on mergers, acquisitions, spinoffs, initial public offerings, and a wide variety of capital market transactions. We also provide ongoing advice and up-to-date insights on trending topics to further cement Citi’s position as a trusted advisor.
How we work. Our advice builds on a suite of proprietary analytical tools and data-driven insights that we develop in-house and continuously expand, improve, and update. Our work combines investment banking, quantitative modeling, and data science, integrating traditional financial analysis with Monte Carlo simulations, derivative pricing models, regression analysis, and event studies. We work directly with clients and partner closely with colleagues all across Citi.
