Citadel Funds Up Double-Digits

Jan 10 2012 | 12:05pm ET

Citadel Investment Group continued to bounce back from its awful 2008 last year, posting double-digit returns in all of its major hedge funds.

The Chicago-based industry giant saw its flagships soar as the average hedge fund shed about 4% in 2011. The Kensington and Wellington funds rose 20.4%, Reuters reports. And that was the bad news for the firm.

Citadel's other funds did even better: It's $2 billion global equities fund rose 21.4% on the year, while its $1.5 billion tactical fund returned an impressive 37.7%.
