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. Citi is aiming to profit from a retreat of rivals slow to adapt new rules forcing banks to keep more capital, the report says. Deutsche Bank (DB), Credit Suisse (CS), and Barclays (BCS) are among others rebuilding their investment banking businesses, the report adds. Reference Link
