After the announcement of the sale of Banamex by Citi, the holder of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), Paul Gomez, mentioned that it would be better for Banamex to pass into the hands of people who today do not have a bank, to prevent the oligopoly from growing.
“Better still a mixed bank: many associated capitalists and the State. Strong discussion topic”.
