“Barclays has reached a USD$100 million multi state settlement over charges that it manipulated the Libor and Euribor interest rate benchmarks.”
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said that government entities and non profit organisations were defrauded of millions when they entered into swap contracts with Barclays as a result of the rate rigging. Other banks that have reached settlements in connection with Libor rate rigging include UBS, Royal Bank of Scotland, Deutsche Bank and ICAP.
