Citadel Securities Europe Boosts Revenues and Profits

Citadel Securities (Europe) Limited is a UK-registered branch of CS Group. In addition to providing market-making services for options, futures, stocks, and others, it supplies trading algorithms and software development to affiliated Group Companies.

The annual earnings "reflects the continued growth and positive trading performance." For the fiscal year concluding on 31 December 2022, the firm generated a total revenue of $499,484, compared to $323,063 in 2021, while the total operational costs came to $348,078, up from $258,327 in the previous year. This was also a better result compared to 2020 when the revenue stood at $349,000.

"The increase in operating expenses was in line with expectations and reflects the Company's investment in strategic growth initiatives and the CS Group's proprietary algorithmic trading technology, with a particular focus on attracting and retaining talent resulting in a 24% increase in headcount since 2021," Citadel Securities commented in the filing.

The rise in trading income corresponded with a boost in volumes in the company's primary markets and ongoing expansion into new sectors and regions. This resulted in an uptrend in operating profit to $151,406, up from $64,736 reported the previous year, and a net profit of $113,361. This means that compared to the $48,676 reported in 2021, the profit soared 113%.
