Hedge fund giant Citadel Investment Group, which has made a killing investing in U.S. securities exchanges, plans to take a majority stake in Europe’s Equiduct Trading.
Equiduct, a multilateral trading facility, was set up by the Börse Berlin in April. It and Citadel Securities will focus on building up a customer base of retail investors, according to Bloomberg News, competing with the year-older Chi-X Europe.
