A banner name joined the Citadel LLC investment firm in 2015. This past spring Ben S. Bernanke was announced as one of the newest members to sign up with this Chicago based hedge fund management team. To many individuals the move by Bernanke offers a number of advantages. What could be better suited for his talents than one of the most prestigious US investment firms?
Even though it was begun less than 30 years ago Citadel LLC has rapidly become a top performing Wall Street firm. The company’s founder is multi-billionaire, Ken Griffin who established this financial investment organization in 1990.
Bernanke is well known for his former position as chairman of the US Federal Reserve. Now he is bringing his financial expertise to the table once again. As a member of the Citadel LLC family Bernanke will serve as a senior investment adviser and consultant.
The Citadel LLC hedge fund management group is estimated to have $25 billion in available investment capital. This money can be used to fuel a multitude of financial opportunities for clients at all levels of the investment spectrum. The combination of direction and experience that Bernanke and Kenneth C. Griffin are able to offer practically ensures that investors will see serious returns for each investment dollar.
Hedge fund management is a complicated field that requires access to research, diverse financial strategy planning and innovative approaches to every investment and acquisition. At Citadel LLC there are experts who work tirelessly to construct diverse portfolios, identify the best investment opportunities and limit the risk exposure for their clients. Although every investment does hold some amount of financial risk the Citadel team can devise sound investment strategies that can often strike a balance between the level of risk and the anticipated amount of rewards.
Kenneth C. Griffin founded this company shortly after his Harvard graduation. Within a decade Citadel LLC had become a powerful leader in the financial field. By the time he was 35 Griffin was already a “mover and shaker” and his name was entered into the Forbes 400 as one of the wealthiest US individuals (younger than 40). Griffin was also recognized as someone who could be described as a “self-made” man. He had worked hard to build his fortune and was now able to enjoy all of the rewards.
Both Griffin and his company have been actively involved in community and philanthropic activities during the past 25 years. As a way of giving back to future generations Griffin has even donated millions of dollars to Harvard’s financial aid department.
