Jamaica and the United States of America have cultivated a relationship with each other in various aspects. One of which we know is through tourism but another strong bond is through the banking system. While there are not many American banks in Jamaica, some Banks in Jamaica have branches in the United States and most, if not all, banks in Jamaica have banking relationships with America.

Which US bank is in Jamaica?

Citi Jamaica

First National City Bank, the moniker by which Citibank was originally known, began operations in New York in 1812. Since then, Citi has played a significant role in some of the most cutting-edge developments in finance, such as the invention of the first ATM.

Since its establishment in Jamaica in 1960, Citi has served a diverse clientele that includes more than 150 multinational corporations and their local subsidiaries, financial institutions, major local businesses, and public sector and governmental organisations. These services include Cash Management, Treasury, Trade Finance, Corporate Finance, Loan and Liquidity products. To help corporate clients perform FX trades electronically and increase the efficiency of their confirmation and settlement procedures, Citi Jamaica introduced a trading platform.

Their Business Specialties are:

Banking, Capital Markets and Advisory- To be the best financial partner to its institutional customers, Citi's Banking, Capital Markets and Advisory division offers comprehensive relationship coverage and a full range of products and services.

Commercial Bank- By rationalising complex legacy setups or enabling clients to avoid them entirely, they help mid-sized businesses with revenues beginning at $10M USD handle the challenges of rapid growth and international expansion so they can scale more quickly and grow larger.

Treasury and Trade Solutions - The treasury services support the global optimisation of their client's requirements. Treasury and Trade Solutions offers international solutions that can assist clients in growing their businesses while putting money into research and development to create fresh solutions.

Address: 19 Hillcrest Ave, Kingston
Phone: (876) 926-3270
