Citi, UBS Financial Services Inc. Enter Into Municipal Distribution Agreement

Citi and UBS Financial Services Inc. have entered into a municipal distribution agreement, which will provide Citi's municipal clients with access to the UBS Wealth Management Americas network of more than 7,000 Financial Advisors.

The agreement, effective January 16, 2014, creates a partnership that will broaden Citi’s national distribution capabilities and give UBS access to Citi’s new issue product for its high net worth clients.

“Citi and UBS have been working together over the past year under a secondary market distribution agreement,” said Ward Marsh, Head of the Municipal Securities Division at Citi. “The addition of a primary market distribution agreement will enhance our relationship, while providing our municipal clients with added depth of distribution. We are excited by the opportunities this will provide our issuer clients.”

“Combining UBS's first class distribution capabilities with Citi's origination capabilities reinforces our open architecture strategy, which provides UBS Financial Advisors and their clients' access to a premium offering,” said Tom Troy, Head of Capital Markets and Sales for UBS Wealth Management Americas. "The evolution of this strategic partnership between UBS and Citi further differentiates our municipal bond offering and enhances our capabilities as a leading provider of municipal securities products to our private clients."

UBS has one of the most productive financial advisor networks on the street. Citi is a leading underwriter of municipal bonds, offering a full range of services to its clients.
