Citigroup banks on disciplined approach to China

Institutional banking and wealth management are focus of Asia strategy

HONG KONG -- U.S. banks from Goldman Sachs to JPMorgan Chase are hurrying to expand in China as the country opens up its financial markets -- but Citigroup's top regional executive says his bank will pick its opportunities carefully rather than get caught up in the rush.
