    NEW YORK, November 7 /CNW/ - Citi announces that it has been named the #1

providers on a sliding scale in a number of categories. Results of the poll

Provision of Cross-Border Cash Pooling, Availability of Global Banking and
Electronic Tools, Innovative Payment and Collection Methods, Global Liquidity
