Citigroup: Expanding Its Balance Sheet while Reducing Risk

Citigroup’s (C) balance sheet has been growing at a faster pace in recent quarters. Its total assets increased 3% YoY (year-over-year) to ~$1.9 trillion at the end of the second quarter of 2018. It was mainly helped by higher deposits, new assets, increased lending, rate spreads, and broking assets. However, the disposal of some legacy assets and share repurchases partially offset the growth.
