Here's a fun little coincidence: Two pieces of Citigroup landing on my desk at the same time, almost as if one was supposed to distract from the other.

The first, via Reuters, is that Citigroup is shuttering its LavaFlow stock trading venue "at a time when regulatory scrutiny has increased around broker-run trading platforms, forcing banks to rethink the costs." Earlier this year, Reuters explains, the SEC fined Citi $5m for "fail[ing] to protect customer data inside LavaFlow from March 2008 through March 2011."

Still, it's not all bad news for the folks at Citigroup. The company has also just signed a new deal  to ensure its employees have access to luxury limos.

“As a global company, it is critical that our employees have access to the most reliable and efficient travel options wherever we operate,” a spokesperson told Bloomberg.

And which reliable and efficient company has Wall Street giant Citi chosen to ferry its employees home after a hard day failing to protect customer data?

None other than Silicon Valley giant, Uber -- which is currently facing a congressional investigation into... its failure to protect customer data.
