Citadel Advisers founder Ken Griffin and high-frequency trading both made news for all the wrong reasons in 2014—Griffin for a contentious divorce, HFT as the villain in Michael Lewis' "Flashboys"—but Griffin's high-frequency trading fund made news for the right reasons: a 19.7% return. As of April 2014, the Citadel Tactical Trading fund was reported to have generated annualized returns of 26% since the beginning of 2008 with just five losing months.

Random Fact: Griffin donated $150 million to his alma mater, Harvard University, in 2014, the largest-ever donation to Harvard.
