The U.S. equity markets are the fairest, most transparent, resilient and competitive markets in the world. Citadel believes that competition and innovation have markedly improved conditions for all investors, who benefit from dramatically lower trading costs, improved market transparency and liquidity, and increased competition. We support regulatory efforts to ensure that U.S. equity markets continue to best serve the interests of all investors.
Citadel is a firm supporter of the G-20 reforms to the OTC derivatives markets, including the central clearing and trading requirements. These reforms have already begun and will continue to reduce interconnectedness and systemic risk, improve pre- and post-trade transparency, and foster an open, level, competitive playing field.
Citadel supports efforts to modernize the regulatory framework for the US Treasury markets, including the introduction of real-time public reporting, the registration of multilateral trading venues, non-discriminatory access to trading venues, and the expansion of repo clearing. Consistent with our longstanding commitment to more fair and efficient markets, we believe these changes will enhance transparency and resiliency in the US Treasury market and provide Treasury market participants with greater choice among trading venues and counterparties.
Citadel believes that investors play an essential and beneficial role in the commodities markets. Investors’ research and analysis leads to greater transparency, facilitating more efficient economic decisions by commodity producers and consumers and optimizing resource allocation across the real economy. At the same time, investors’ market activity enhances liquidity and facilitates the price discovery process for all market participants.
