Citigold Private Clients to benefit from new Mastercard World Debit Card

Mastercard has partnered with Citi to offer its UK Citigold Private Clients the exclusive new Mastercard World Debit Card. Citigold Private Clients benefit from a truly bespoke wealth management experience, and the new partnership with Mastercard will offer a card with features that reflect their needs and ambitions.

The card is designed to meet the needs of a global lifestyle. Clients will be able to link their card to up to 11 of their foreign currency accounts while travelling, allowing them to withdraw different currencies with just one card. They will also benefit from Worldwide Travel Insurance. The World Debit Card also offers airport lounge access and concierge services around the world.

Becoming a Mastercard holder gives clients access to exclusive offers from Mastercard’s Priceless sponsorship assets, such as The BRIT Awards, UEFA Champions League, The Open and Goodwood Road and Racing. Mastercard has the widest acceptance both in the UK and overseas with 43.5million available locations – no network is more widely accepted.

Clients will also benefit from Mastercard’s digital payments expertise, fraud analytics and innovation capabilities in order to bring them more convenient, safe and secure payment services.

Eimear Creaven, Senior Vice President, Mastercard UK&I said: “It’s a privilege to offer our first World Debit Mastercard to Citigold Private Clients. The unique global benefits that come with this card complement the world-class wealth management and investment clients benefit from. Plus, they now have the reach and resources of both Citi and Mastercard, wherever they are in the world.”

Salman Haider, Head of UK Consumer Bank and International Personal Bank EMEA commented: “At Citi, we pride ourselves on providing the best in class wealth management services to our Citigold Private Clients, and we believe that this new partnership with Mastercard aligns perfectly with our goal.  We’re delighted to be able to present our clients with this exclusive new offering and look forward to working closely with Mastercard going forward.”
