Apply for a Citibank credit card
Citibank's history in the Philippines dates back to July 1902 when the International Banking Corp., the forerunner of Citibank, first established a branch in Manila. Citibank is currently the largest foreign commercial bank in the Philippines in terms of assets, revenues and profitability. It provides corporate banking, treasury, transactional banking and consumer banking services, as well as a comprehensive Citibank credit card lineup.
