Why Citadel


Our Values


We do things the right way, without compromise, the first time – every time. We are direct, decisive and, above all, accountable. We practice sound judgment and common sense in our actions that conforms to the letter and spirit of the law at all times. We win on the merits, with integrity.


We are here to win. We are constantly improving, and are committed to out-thinking and out-executing our competitors. We take on what others dismiss as impossible, and solve the hard problems that others walk away from. This is why we hire the best.


We empower and reward team members who deliver results. We create opportunities by consistently making career and compensation decisions on the merits, recognizing that doing so attracts and retains the best and brightest at Citadel.

Supporting Our Communities


In 2018, Citadel and Citadel Securities announced the launch of MarketWorks, the first digital learning initiative designed to teach high school students about how capital markets work and to empower them to make responsible, lifelong investment decisions. Through an engaging, gamified learning experience, students tackle economic and investment concepts to learn how the government, corporations, and individuals come together to participate in the financial marketplace. MarketWorks is available to schools in the Greater Chicago Metro Area and neighboring counties as well as schools in Dallas, TX at no cost to the schools or taxpayers.
