06:55 EDTUBSBanks pitch total-return swaps as stock purchase alternative, WSJ reports
Banks have been pitching certain hedge fund clients on using derivatives instead of actual stocks when placing certain bets in an effort to lessen the impact of new capital rules on the banks' businesses, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the efforts. The shift involves derivatives known as total-return swaps that mirror the effects of owning a stock or other asset, the report says. Units of Bank of America (BAC), Goldman Sachs (GS), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Morgan Stanley (MS), and UBS (UBS) are among the banks asking clients to shift trades into total-return swaps instead of underlying securities, the report says.

06:36 EDTDBBaFin accuses Deutsche Bank execs of Libor negligence, WSJ reports
German regulators have accused several Deutsche Bank executives of failing to halt or notify regulators about years of attempted market manipulation, the Wall Street Journal reports, according to a confidential report. BaFin, Germany's financial watchdog, sent the report to Deutsche Bank's board on May 11, less than a month before the bank announced that its co-CEOs Anshu Jain and Jurgen Fitschen intended to resign, the report says. Jain was singled out particularly int he letter for allegedly providing inadequate leadership and failing to stop manipulation of the London interbank offered rate, or Libor, and other benchmarks, the report says. Four other Deutsche bank board members and two other senior executives were also harshly criticized by BaFin in the report for negligence and selective disclosures, the Wall Street Journal says.
