Citadel Wins “Best Risk Management Initiative”

December 07, 2015

We’re honored to share that Citadel’s Risk Center was recognized as the “Best Risk Management Initiative” of 2015 at the American Financial Technology Awards on December 7. Located in our Chicago Headquarters, the Risk Center provides a real-time and interactive visualization of our portfolios’ risk exposures and guideline utilizations. It is comprised of two curved floor-to-celling 365” and 165” (in diagonal) touchscreens.

The technological challenge of creating the Center was immense – no single solution in the world had the functionality that we required, so the combination of hardware, software, data analytics, and visual representations needed to be designed, integrated, and built. The result of the design and development processis a library of hundreds of rich risk data visualizations that can be manipulated by touch. This constantly growing and evolving framework capitalizes on the extensive infrastructure present in the firm that supports trading, risk management, treasury, and operations.
