Between 2007 to 2010, he had made requests to RBS’s primary submitters, benefiting from the trade positions he and his fellow derivatives traders were responsible for.  He had also twice, secured the help of a broker to manipulate the JPY LIBOR submission of other banks.  Between 2008 and 2009, he had also entered into “wash trades” or transactions that cancelled out each other, to generate brokerage fees to brokers in return for receiving hospitality treats (dining & drinks).  In addition to the fine of £250,000, the ex-RBS trader is also prohibited from working in the financial services.

Since 1st April 2013, the FCA has became responsible for conduct supervision of all regulated financial firms, and imposed 7 penalties totalling £426 million in fines on firms for misconduct relating to LIBOR.
