Citadel Securities UK Sees Significant Revenue Boost

Citadel Securities is an American market-making firm headquartered in Miami. Its British subsidiary, Citadel Securities Finance (UK) Limited, which provides similar services, has just published its financial results for the past year.

The report, which can be found on the UK Companies House website, reveals that total income rose nearly 120% from $559.19 million reported in 2021 to $1.23 billion. During the same period, the company significantly increased its total comprehensive income, which grew 78% from $323.8 million to $575.52 million.

The firm also substantially increased its expenditure, from $190.47 million to $520.51 million. However, the growth in both revenue and costs was in line with management expectations.

"Our strategy is to continue to grow trading activities in financial instruments on a proprietary basis by expanding to new markets and asset classes," the company noted in the filing.

The total equity value owned by the company at the end of the period, which includes share capital, other reserves, and retained earnings, amounted to $1.1 billion, compared to $528 million reported in the previous year. As for the total value of assets, it increased to $2.19 billion.

$7 Million Fine for Citadel Securities

Less than two weeks ago, Finance Magnates reported that Citadel Securities had resolved allegations of breaching Regulation SHO, a rule designed to regulate short-selling activities. The issue centered on the firm's supposed inability to correctly label sale orders as either long, short, or short exempt.

The SEC's probe uncovered a consistent series of mislabeled orders spanning five years, which were traced back to a programming glitch in Citadel Securities' automated trading platform . During this period, the company incorrectly identified short sales as long sales and vice versa. Adding to the SEC's concerns was the fact that Citadel submitted this flawed data to oversight bodies, including the SEC itself, without any detection or rectification.
