Citadel Securities raked in a record $7.5 billion in 2022, capitalizing on last year’s volatility and raising its presence as one of the largest trading units in the US.

Revenue for the market-making arm of billionaire Ken Griffin’s Citadel empire jumped 7.1% from the previous year’s $7 billion, a spokesperson confirmed. Citadel Securities has posted 12 consecutive quarters of net trading revenue in excess of $1 billion, he said.
