After twice bailing out online brokerage E*Trade Financial, and two years after demanding changes at the company, Citadel Investment Group is getting out.
The Chicago-based hedge fund, which is currently E*Trade’s largest shareholder, will sell its remaining 27.4 million shares, worth about $323.9 million. The sale is expected to be completed by Tuesday.
E*Trade shares have rallied 32% this year.
