“The certificate highlights our progress in online and mobile capabilities as well as our innovative solutions across digital banking to support clients. This achievement is a direct result of our long-term focus on digital which our team globally, regionally, and locally, has delivered in Asia and Vietnam,” said Natasha Ansell, Citi Vietnam country officer.
Citi pushed forward with a number of digital services aimed at improving the digital experiences for both corporate and individual clients in recent years. The bank’s “mobile-first” strategy that puts access and capabilities consumers need into the palms of their hands has helped Citi expand its leading role in digital banking in Vietnam.

In corporate banking, Citi’s award-winning electronic platform CitiDirect BE helped to ensure that institutional clients can continue to perform their core banking activities in a controlled, digital way during the challenging environment of COVID-19.
From 2019, Citi’s institutional clients in Vietnam could also use fingerprint or facial recognition to access Citi’s institutional banking platform on mobile. The bank has also recently launched CitiDirect Digital Onboarding (CDDO) in Vietnam, providing corporate clients with a digital channel for account opening and product implementation.
