The Citi Global Wealth ULTIMA card is brought to market as spending by the bank’s extremely wealthy clientele continues to exceed pre-pandemic levels.

Spending increased 56% in Singapore and 36% in Hong Kong during the first half of this year in comparison to the same period in 2019.

Shopping, dining, and travel were the top three spend categories across both markets.

Ultra-high net worth consumers sought out more experiences for themselves and their loved ones, notably in travel, as well as devote quality time in wellness, according to studies Citi commissioned in Hong Kong and Singapore.

In addition, the card offers tailored travel and lifestyle experiences, wellness features, and rewards as well as distinct advantages, taking into account the spending propensity and changing preferences of this client segment.

Lifestyle relationship managers are also available to assist with the use of the card.
