Citigroup Inc. dealmakers have been suggested to be disciplined when ingesting alcohol at client events after the bank got complaints of unruly habits, in line with folk with facts of the matter.
In calls gradual this week, bankers at all levels — from analysts to managing directors — have been reminded to maintain the firm’s popularity in mind when drinking, said the folk, who requested now not to be identified discussing confidential facts. The senior bankers leading the calls didn’t place a entire curb on consumption of alcohol, noting that drinking in industry settings has wide cultural acceptance, the folk said.
A consultant for Fresh York-essentially essentially based Citigroup declined to comment.
