Transferring money to international accounts

How does Citi make money if it doesn’t charge a fee?

Like most banks and money transfer providers, Citi earns a margin on the exchange rate when money is converted. Unlike most banks and money transfer providers, Citi does not charge a transfer fee in addition to margin.

So, what is margin? You can think of margin as a “mark-up” on the market (or interbank) rate - the difference between what a currency provider pays to buy a currency (from the foreign exchange market) and what it charges you for the currency.

Despite not charging fees, Citi still maintains some of the country’s lowest margins (i.e. offers customers some of the best exchange rates). See for yourself.
