Citi’s Upside-Down Family Tree

Fascinating chart from Citigroup, showing its history from 1812 (City Bank of NY) to present, including all of the various acquisitions, mergers, etc.

One odd thing: They got the entire “tree” metaphor wrong. The older companies should be their roots, and the latest version is where its grown to. Instead, its upside down!

Someone should tell Citi that trees grow up, not downwards . . .
