Citadel Investment Group is among the most successful hedge funds in history, so it's little wonder that other firms are lining up to license its technology.

Citadel Technology now boasts a mix of clients, including fund managers and institutional investors, who can access the technology either locally, by installing it, or by using it on the Internet. The systems support all asset classes and multiple prime broker relationships.
Citadel has been licensing its technology since 2009.
