Citadel Said to Consider Fee Cuts as Hedge Funds Seek Clients

Citadel LLC is considering cutting fees on its two main funds as it attempts to attract clients during the worst climate for raising money in two decades, said two people with knowledge of the firm’s plans.

The Kensington and Wellington hedge funds at Chicago-based Citadel, the $11.1 billion firm founded by Ken Griffin, are among a handful that pass along all expenses to clients rather than charging the industry-standard 2 percent annual management fee. Expenses at the firm have reached as much as 8 percent of assets, and typically range from 4 percent to 6 percent.
