Hedge-fund seeding firm SkyBridge Capital LLCis acquiring Citigroup Inc.'s (C.) fund of hedge funds, hedge-fund seeding and hedge fund advisory businesses, a transaction that quadruples the size of SkyBridge and marks Citigroup's latest sale of non-core assets.

The businesses being acquired are part of Citi Holdings, which is made up of Citi's noncore assets and businesses that the financial-services giant is in the process of unloading. The Wall Street Journal reported in February that SkyBridge and Citi were in talks about a transaction.

Shares of Popular Inc. (BPOP) advanced Wednesday after the Puerto Rico-based parent company of Banco Popular said it was raising $1 billion through a public offering of depository shares.
