Ken Griffin has encountered multiple challenges since founding Citadel three decades ago, including the 2008 financial crash that came close to imperiling his firm. Now, the world is facing a very different order of threat with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Griffin spoke on Friday in Chicago for an episode of “Bloomberg Wealth with David Rubenstein” about the fallout in markets, the negative ramifications that current U.S. sanctions are likely to have on American technology firms and the dollar, and the importance of ending Europe’s energy dependency on Russia.
