The bank also plans to shed 84 branches in Brazil (14), Hong Kong (7), Hungary (4), Korea (15) and the United States (44). It will have 4,000 retail branches worldwide after the reductions.

Citi Holdings: 350 positions in the unit that contains unwanted assets being disposed of after the financial crisis.
