Citigroup Inc. has been named the top underwriter for 2009 in the category of U.S. dollar-denominated corporate bonds and is the only bank in the top 10 to report an increase in U.S. underwriting market share last year, according to the data provider Dealogic.

Citigroup won a 14.97% market share in 2009, having underwritten 300 deals totaling $158.1 billion. This was nearly double its 2008 volume of $85.3 billion when it placed third to Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co.
