The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - BUSINESS -

I trace my roots way back to the 1812 found­ing of the City Bank of New York, which later grew into the Na­tional City Bank of New York. I had a net­work of ATMs in the late 1970s. I be­came a ma­jor credit card is­suer af­ter buy­ing Carte Blanche in 1978 and am now the top is­suer glob­ally. I’m an in­ter­na­tional bank­ing gi­ant, with more than 200,000 em­ploy­ees, more than 100 mil­lion cus­tomers and a mar­ket value re­cently near $165 bil­lion. I rake in more than $70 bil­lion an­nu­ally. I’m the re­sult of a 1998 merger with Trav­el­ers Group. Who am I? (An­swer: Cit­i­group)
