Citigroup winding down private placement business-source

Citigroup Inc. is slowing down its private placement business, called Citi Alternatives Distribution Group.

A fraction of the group will remain to serve existing customers.

According to Citigroup’s website, the private placement division consists of a team of more than 50 people. The team is primarily focused on capital raising for private equity funds, real estate, infrastructure and hedge funds.

Asked about the immediate and long term impact to PPM, CEO Jake Evans remarked that “We have a great relationship with Citi’s team. I am personally upset for the loss of jobs. In many respects our firm is the exclusive private placement memorandum consultants for Citi. This, I am told, will continue long term. Short term may slow some of our European projects down. We may, however, also bring aboard one or two of the people that Citi lets go.”
