in their daily wealth management and establish itself as their trustworthy

‘Citi Interest Booster’ is customer-driven to make wealth management an
easy “mission” and earn annual deposit interest rate of up to 1.8%

  • ‘Citi Interest Booster’ allows clients to manage their wealth with more
    ease and earn higher deposit interest rates, via easy “missions” of daily wealth
    management such as savings, deposit, debit/credit card spending, investment or
    foreign currency exchange. Clients can opt for the appropriate “mission”
    according to their personal needs, and the deposit interest rate will be
    upgraded upon completion of each “mission”, with an annual interest rate of
    up to 1.8% upon the completion of four “missions”. Clients can access
    the Citi Mobile® App anytime to check the progress of each “mission”
    and the level of their interest rate. Interest Booster enables users to enjoy
    banking like gaming and earn rewards as their level goes up.

 

Investment starts with a
low threshold with access to customized wealth management information

  • Citi Plus clients can enjoy
    the digital investment experience anywhere, any time, and fully master financial
    and investment strategies covering investment products such as stocks, ‘Flexi
    Wealth’ and fund. Clients can start investing with as little as HK$1, while
    a tailor-made fund portfolio based on customers’ financial situations,
    goals and risk profiles will be offered at a minimum of HK$100, thus giving
    them great flexibility. Citi Plus
    will also bring clients customized wealth management information and relevant tips,
    getting them ready to gain access to the wealth escalator to start investing
    and to keep on upgrading regardless of investment experience and wealth.

 

All-in-one Citi Mobile® App

  • Citi Plus clients can now experience a fully digital platform through the new
    interface design of the Citi Mobile® App. The Citi Mobile®
    App makes transfers, investment and shopping easy, convenient and fast, with
    seamless operation within the App. For enquiries, the “messaging”
    function in the App is available 24/7 so that users can contact a customer service
    officer anytime via message – more convenient than a phone call.

    and fitness memberships will earn up to 3x reward points and free shopping

    earn higher deposit interest rate.

and capabilities of our team, and we expect through launching this new service,
our new clients will be doubled in the next two years.”

innovation, and works relentlessly to cultivate digital development, innovation
and transition. “For overall banking services, Citi Plus also promotes inclusion in wealth management, allowing young
clients to get comprehensive financial investment services more easily. Citi Plus offer suitable fund portfolios,
giving them more investment options, accompanying them as they level up,
accumulate wealth and achieve their financial goals. The pandemic has sped up
digitalization, and consumers have experienced personally the boundless possibilities
of digital
living. All sectors will explore their roles regarding digital banking
services, which will make mobile banking even more popular,’ added Mr Lam. Citi Plus will be officially launched in
the first quarter of next year. Further details will be released closer to the
