WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Citigroup Inc C.N agreed to pay a $400 million penalty and draw up a sweeping remediation plan after U.S. regulators identified “several longstanding deficiencies” and operational lapses, U.S. regulators said on Wednesday.
The Federal Reserve and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency said that the bank required “comprehensive corrective actions” and must overhaul its risk management, data governance and internal controls across the company.
The Fed said the action “requires the firm to correct several longstanding deficiencies.”
“For several years, the Bank has failed to implement and maintain an enterprisewide risk management and compliance risk management program, internal controls, or a data governance program commensurate with the Bank’s size, complexity, and risk profile,” the OCC said in its consent order.
