Citigroup strategist to leave after 40 years

George Friedlander, one of the best-known strategists in the $3.8tril municipal bond market, is leaving Citigroup after about 40 years with the bank.

Bloomberg News reports that Friedlander, 68, confirmed on Wednesday that he is leaving Citigroup, but not retiring. After some time off, he hopes to do part time or consulting work on the policy side of the municipal sector rather than his more familiar role as providing commentary on issuance and the status of state and local entities.

Friendlander first joined Citigroup in 1975 as an assistant to a credit analyst. He briefly left for Morgan Stanley’s wealth management division in 2009. He rejoined Citigroup in 2010 as a managing director of municipal finance.

Over his career, Friedlander was named to Institutional Investor’s "All-American Research Team" for 14 years. He was a member of the Securities Industry and Financial Market Association’s municipal division executive committee for 29 years, and received the association’s Chairman’s Contribution Award in 1997.
