Whitestone Citibank provides professional investment advice

Not many banks can brag about having one of the top investment firms associated with their name, but Citibank is fortunate to have Smith Barney as its go-to company for help in the investment world.
In addition, to make it even more beneficial for their clients, there is usually an investment banker at the branches to help with just about every aspect of investing aside from basic checking and savings.
Brett Gallin, a 14-year associate of Citibank, is the Smith Barney Financial Associate at the Whitestone Citibank and prides himself on pouring his heart and soul into his job to help people set up their financial lives.
“That’s my life in general,” he said. “I pour my heart and passion into what I do.”
Gallin said it is an obvious benefit for clients to have “some of the best minds on Wall Street” working for them through the Smith Barney synergy.
Citibank offers a wide variety of research platforms that help make big financial choices easier.
Located at 153-16 10th Avenue in Whitestone, Citibank offers basic checking and savings accounts, IRAs and rollovers, many types of loans, life insurance, credit cards and mortgages.
“Not many banks do financial planning with long-term care,” Gallin said. “Most do it on a third-party basis and usually it comes down to having the right tools, which we do by bringing Wall Street right into our branch.”
Citibank also handles estate planning, stocks and bonds.
Whitestone Citibank is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and is closed on Sunday.
