Citigroup (C) , the U.S. bank that's pledged to pump $2.5 billion of new investment into Mexico, remains undaunted in its commitment despite Donald Trump's victory in the U.S. presidential race, which dragged the peso down by 10%.
The lender, which owns one of Mexico's biggest banks, has seen its stock price lag in the past week as overall financial-company shares surged on the prospect of reduced regulation and higher interest rates under a Trump presidency. Citigroup's shares have gained 9.2% since the election, versus a 12% climb in the KBW Bank Index.
"The market's view of Mexico perhaps is not quite as constructive right now as our view of Mexico," Citigroup CFO John Gerspach told investors Wednesday at a conference in New York. "We still think there is a lot of value in that Mexico franchise."
During the campaign, Trump promised to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, one of the biggest drivers of Mexico's economic growth since it took effect in 1994. The president-elect also pledged to build an "impenetrable physical wall" along the border and force Mexico to pay for it. In an interview broadcast Sunday on "60 Minutes," Trump said he might accept a fence instead of a wall in certain areas.
