NEW YORK (AP) — Citigroup says its income fell 11 percent in the last three months of last year because of lower investment banking income, an accounting charge and a decline in the value of its assets.

The bank said Tuesday that it made $1.2 billion, or 38 cents per share, on revenue of $17.2 billion. The results fell short of the 54 cents per share estimated by analysts surveyed by FactSet, a provider of financial data.

Citi's stock is down 2.5 percent at $29.98 in pre-market trading.
