Big investors sue 16 banks in US over currency market rigging
Updated : November 08, 2018 06:45 AM IST
The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in the US District Court in Manhattan by plaintiffs that decided to "opt out" of similar nationwide litigation that has resulted in $2.31 billion of settlements with 15 of the banks.
Those settlements followed worldwide regulatory probes that have led to more than $10 billion of fines for several banks, and the convictions or indictments of some traders.
The banks being sued are: Bank of America, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Japan's MUFG Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, Royal Bank of Scotland, Societe Generale, Standard Chartered and UBS.
