Ten members of staff in Citi’s Asia Pacific equities research department have been laid off as the bank completed the final stage of a comprehensive global reorganisation.

According to Reuters, the restructuring lowered levels of management to eight from 13.

Citi’s recent restructuring completes its new framework and is part of a larger objective to reduce its global workforce of 239,000 by 20,000 over the next two years.

The firm removed 1,500 managerial positions, accounting for 13% of its global leaders.

Additionally, early this month, Citi Private Bank enhanced its Global Family Office (GFO) by adding a new member.

The bank announced Richard Weintraub as the new leader of the Family Office Group for the Americas.
