Ken Griffin, Illinois’ richest man, says Citadel may move headquarters from Chicago | State and Regional

CHICAGO — Billionaire hedge fund supervisor Ken Griffin, the wealthiest particular person in Illinois, instructed the Financial Membership of Chicago Monday he has grave doubts about the way forward for Chicago, and that his funding agency, Citadel, will most likely transfer its headquarters elsewhere — if town does not “change course.”

Griffin mentioned Chicago stays the company headquarters, however the agency’s New York workplace is now the “central point” with nicely over a thousand staff. He cited elevated crime and violence on the streets of Chicago as one in all a number of the reason why Citadel, which has $38 billion in property below administration, might search greener company pastures.

Ken Griffin, the billionaire founding father of Citadel Securities, says he backs Securities and Trade Fee Chair Gary Gensler’s name for expanded oversight of the cryptocurrrency business. “We don’t trade crypto because of the regulatory uncertainty,” Griffin mentioned in a dialog with Bloomberg’s Erik Schatzker on the Financial Membership of Chicago. “If crypto was regulated, I would trade it.”

“It’s becoming ever more difficult to have this as our global headquarters, a city which has so much violence,” Griffin mentioned. “Chicago is like Afghanistan on a good day. And that’s a problem.”

That was one in all many civic blows delivered by Griffin, 52, throughout his pull-no-punches look Monday, the place he took on metropolis and state leaders over points together with “broken” public colleges, excessive taxes, the necessity for pension reform and crime.

Griffin mentioned throughout the peak of the civil unrest in summer season 2020, when greater than 2,100 companies throughout Chicago had been broken following the killing of George Floyd, a Black man, below the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer, he implored Gov. J.B. Pritzker to declare a state of emergency and deploy the Nationwide Guard.

“I told him to deploy the National Guard and he goes, ‘it won’t look good for there to be men and women on Michigan Avenue with assault weapons,'” Griffin instructed the Financial Membership members in attendance and people viewing on-line. “‘If that saves the life of a child, I don’t care.’ And he doesn’t care.”

A Pritzker spokeswoman denied the accuracy of Griffin’s recounting of the dialog and responded to the criticism in equally blunt phrases Monday afternoon.

“Ken Griffin is a liar,” Emily Bittner, a Pritzker spokeswoman, mentioned in an emailed assertion. “Gov. Pritzker is dedicated to the safety of this city and state, deployed the National Guard during the social unrest in the summer of 2020 and is making landmark investments in crime prevention.”

Griffin, who based Citadel in 1990 and constructed it into one of many largest hedge funds on this planet, is price a reported $16 billion. He has donated greater than $1 billion to organizations such because the Artwork Institute, the Museum of Trendy Artwork and the Museum of Science and Trade, which introduced it could be renamed in honor of Griffin in 2019.

Whereas he has been a number one civic gentle in Chicago for years, Griffin painted a darkish image of his hometown throughout the hourlong occasion, which additionally addressed every little thing from vaccinations and the necessity to return to the workplace to the inadvisability of one other Trump presidency.

Working from dwelling

Citadel staff are 98% totally vaccinated — on a voluntary foundation — and have been 100% again within the workplace since June, Griffin mentioned. He’s a robust proponent of vaccinations in opposition to COVID-19 and believes mandates for schoolchildren and for “areas of the economy where people are in frequent contact with others” could also be useful.

Working from dwelling, he mentioned, is adversely affecting the careers of younger staff.

“If you are early in your career, you are making a grave mistake not being back at work,” Griffin mentioned. “It’s incredibly difficult to have the managerial experiences and interpersonal experiences that you need to have to take your career forward in a work remotely environment.”

Donald Trump

Griffin mentioned former President Donald Trump’s financial insurance policies had been “pretty damn good” for America, however the polarization throughout his administration was not. He by no means financially supported Trump’s marketing campaign due to the previous president’s “incredibly offensive attacks on the Hispanic community,” which he mentioned hit dwelling after rising up in Florida.

As such, Griffin doesn’t assist one other Trump run for president in 2024.

“I think it’s time for America to move on,” Griffin mentioned. “The four years under President Donald Trump were so pointlessly divisive, it was not constructive for our country.”

Cryptocurrency

Citadel doesn’t commerce within the unregulated, $1 trillion cryptocurrency market, and Griffin is lower than bullish on the decentralized digital forex. He mentioned “thoughtful regulation” round cryptocurrency will make it a safer and smaller market.

Griffin mentioned regulation is the one method Citadel would wade into the frothy buying and selling waters of Bitcoin and different cryptocurrencies.

“I just don’t want to take on the regulatory risk, in this regulatory void, that some of my contemporaries are willing to take on,” Griffin mentioned.

The Arlington Heights Bears

The Chicago Bears introduced a $197.2 million buy settlement final month to purchase Arlington Worldwide Racecourse which will presage a transfer from the workforce’s longtime dwelling at Soldier Subject to a brand new stadium in Arlington Heights. Griffin mentioned he hopes the Bears do not go away town, however likened it to a broader exodus of companies and expertise.

“I so hope they stay in Chicago,” Griffin mentioned. “I see it as I lose my friends, one by one from this great city. The combination of crime and estate tax that’s incredibly higher than most states. People just don’t want to call this home as they get older.”

Transferring Citadel’s headquarters

Griffin mentioned Chicago’s days because the headquarters for Citadel could also be numbered, with crime topping the listing of the reason why the hedge fund is contemplating, just like the Bears, an eventual transfer to a different metropolis. He mentioned the agency is not “as here as we were” a decade in the past, with different places of work equivalent to New York rising quickly.

“There is nowhere where you can feel safe today, walking home at 9:30 at night, and you worry about your kids going to and from school,” Griffin mentioned. “That’s no way for our city to exist. And it’s really hard to recruit people to Chicago, when they read the headlines.”

There are at present 1,150 staff within the Chicago workplace, the agency mentioned Monday. As to how lengthy Chicago stays the worldwide headquarters for Citadel, Griffin issued a obscure timetable and a transparent warning.
