Tips on an International Career in finance

Andrea Fletcher is the Chief Operating Officer for Citigroup in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The APAC region encompasses 70,000+ employees, across 14 countries, with 7 businesses generating revenues over US$10bn annually. Her role is to help drive Citi’s efforts to grow the regional Asia ‘franchise’ as well as overseeing organization-wide strategic and governance initiatives for Asia.

Andrea has 28 years global experience, with the exception of 4 years, all working outside of the UK. Her journey started after graduating in 1994 with a BA in French and Business from Loughborough University, which included a placement year living and working in France. Since then she has lived in the UK, Australia and Hong Kong. From starting out on the trading floor in London, she now manages a regional team based in Hong Kong, Singapore and Mumbai. Prior to this she has managed teams in New York, London and Tokyo.

Post Loughborough, Andrea joined the Investment Banking industry in London with the Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) in European Equity Sales & Research; before re-locating to Sydney, Australia in an Equity Sales role, with HSBC, in 1998.

Andrea joined Citigroup in 1999 working on the Australian Equity Sales desk in Sydney then moved  to Hong Kong in 2010 to head the Markets Client Management team for Pan Asia.

In 2015 she took on a newly created role as the Global Head of Client Strategy for Equities and Prime Finance to help drive Citi’s global growth strategy in Equities; and in March 2020 Andrea moved to a cross franchise / business role after being appointed as the Chief Operating Officer and Chief of Staff for Asia Pacific.

Throughout her career Andrea has been a keen supporter of diversity in the workplace and extensively involved in mentoring and leadership programs.

She currently lives in Hong Kong with her Loughborough Alumni husband Nick and they have two daughters aged 17 and 14 years.
