I got a tour of Citi's new wealth hub in Singapore for high-net-worth clients, a 30,000-square-foot space with 'garden pods' for meetings. Look inside.

The space features "garden pods" for meetings. Katie Warren/Insider I toured Citi's new wealth hub in Singapore for its high-net-worth clients. It was designed to cater to clients with assets starting at 250,000 Singapore dollars, or about $186,000. It felt more like an upscale lounge than a bank.

Nicosia has the distinction of being the last divided capital...
