Dealing with an international clientele. In 1985, while facing increasing demands for domestic banking services, this corporation restructured itself into two separate divisions:
CITCO Banking Corporation, to continue working with international clients, and CITCO Bank Antilles, to serve the local market. In 1995 the name of CITCO Bank Antilles was changed to SFT Bank N.V.
