We are the Financial Strategy Group (FSG), a corporate finance advisory team in Citi’s Banking, Capital Markets and Advisory (BCMA) 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 professional backgrounds range from investment banker to management consultant to rating agency analyst to finance professor. 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.

Your role. As an associate 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 mentor junior team members and oversee projects. 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.

About you. You have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in data science, economics, finance, statistics, or another quantitative field. You have an outstanding record of academic achievement and a genuine interest in the world of finance. You are hard-working, organized, proactive, and methodical.
