With more than $2 trillion in total assets, Citigroup is one of the largest and most global banks in the world. It has more than 200 million customers in more than 100 countries and offers a vast array of financial services. While Citigroup has been a highly profitable and successful bank, in 2008 massive losses on securities related to home loans and other asset-backed securities caused negative profits and damage to its capital that threatened the bank’s solvency. The U.S. government injected more than $40 billion of new capital in an effort to prevent the bank’s failure. The government also provided guarantees on more than $300 billion of risky loans made by Citicorp.
