Citigroup (C) is planning to rebuild its equities franchise in an effort to capitalize on a retrenchment by rivals in the face of new rules created to make the financial system less risky, Reuters reports, citing people familiar with the bank's plans. It may be tough to overcome leaders such as Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), and JPMorgan Chase (JPM), that have long dominated the sector, the report says.
