Citigroup is the latest big bank to receive US government help. The U.S. Treasury will invest $20 billion in Citigroup as part of its Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) in exchange for preferred shares that carry an 8 percent coupon.

In addition the US government has agreed to guarantee over $300 billion of Citigroup’s troubled assets, loans and securities backed by residential and commercial real estate.
