Citigroup Inc. Research Report

Together with Goldman Sachs, Citigroup took action regarding cyber-attack prevention by alerting shareholders, as the US has urged government agencies and banks to strengthen their defenses against such attacks. Mobile and online banking provide new entry points that can be used to either penetrate or disturb operations. In February, President Obama asked the government to develop cyber security standards to aid the companies that are running important infrastructure. Security research firms noted that there is likely to be a 30 percent increase in the companies' expenses that are related to cyber intrusions, once the cyber security standards are implemented. Meanwhile, Citigroup recently announced development of a new mobile and web-based patient payment solution, Money2 for Health, with Aetna as the charter healthcare benefits company. The payment platform enables patients to go online or use their mobile devices to reconcile their healthcare bills, receive alerts, pay amounts due, and view past payments. The platform brings together a network of insurance carriers and healthcare providers. Money2for Health is expected to launch in late 2013.
