Citadel believes that fair, open, competitive, and transparent markets best serve the needs of all participants.

OTC Derivatives – US

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.

OTC Derivatives – Europe

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.

OTC Derivatives – APAC

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.

US Treasuries

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.

Commodity Futures

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.

Foreign Exchange

Citadel supports the FX Global Code’s objectives of promoting a robust, fair, liquid, open, and appropriately transparent foreign exchange market, and believes that realizing these objectives requires a transition to fully firm pricing and the elimination of “last look” practices.
