Salcedo Auctions, Citi team up

/ 10:37 PM September 14, 2013

Citi, the pioneer and leader in wealth management in the Philippines, is teaming up with premier auction house Salcedo Auctions to provide its Citigold clients access to professional advice on alternative investment opportunities such as art and jewelry. Citigold is Citi’s wealth management service and one of its most successful brands in Asia Pacific.

In a series of exclusive briefings dubbed as Gold Conversations, Salcedo Auctions will be providing Citigold clients a preview of important Philippine art and jewelry pieces and hold informative lectures focusing on these as an opportunity to grow their wealth. This completes the suite of exclusive benefits available to Citigold clients, which include access to a team of financial experts, and information on worldwide market trends and financial developments.


Citi’s Retail Bank Director for the Philippines, Anthony Thomas, and Salcedo Auctions president Karen Lerma formalized the partnership in a symbolic hand-shaking ceremony, with a Philippine art piece by Anita Magsaysay-Ho, as backdrop. This masterpiece is one of the highlights of Salcedo’s forthcoming Important Philippine Art auction.

According to Thomas, “Through this partnership with Salcedo Auctions, we reaffirm our commitment to respond to the sophisticated needs of our clientele, and enable them to make better informed investment decisions to attain their financial goals. Citi is the largest wealth manager in Asia, and we draw on our global exposure to offer relevant products and services to our discerning clients.”


Citigold was introduced in the Philippines in the early 90s. Since then, it has provided premium wealth management services to the affluent market, helping clients grow, manage and protect their wealth and secure their financial future. Citigold offers access to a team of professionals, unmatched research services, world-class products, global banking services, and exclusive privileges and rewards.

Lerma, for her part, cited the synergy between the two institutions: “Salcedo Auctions, much like Citigold, enjoys the trust and confidence of its discerning clientele because of its uncompromising standards of excellence, thorough knowledge of the market, and specialist expertise. We welcome this partnership as a coming together of two industry leaders.”
