A person familiar with the matter has reported that the job cuts come as bond trading has seen a slump and the bank also expects to see some decline in their trading revenue. Headquartered in Manhattan, New York City, Citigroup Inc. is a multinational financial services corporation. The year 2012 marked Citi’s 200th anniversary. It is currently the third largest bank holding company in the United States by assets.
