The wealth management business continued to suffer despite Citigroup posting its first profit in 18 months, with first quarter net income of $1.59bn compared with a loss of $5.11bn in the same period last year.

Citi, which plans to offload its Smith Barney brokerage operation to a joint-venture with Morgan Stanley, saw a 20% decline in global wealth management revenues in the first three months of the year compared to the same period last year, with net income down 11% thanks to cost savings.
