10:16 EDTBCSBarclays to pay $115M for attempted manipulation of ISDAFIX swap rates
The CFTC issued an Order today filing and settling charges against Barclays PLC, Barclays Bank PLC, and Barclays Capital. The Order finds that, beginning at least as early as January 2007 and continuing through June 2012, Barclays attempted on many occasions to manipulate and made false reports concerning the U.S. Dollar International Swaps and Derivatives Association Fix, a global benchmark for interest rate products. This is the first enforcement action addressing abuses of this benchmark. The CFTC Order requires Barclays to pay a $115M civil monetary penalty, cease and desist from further violations as charged, and take specified remedial steps, including measures to detect and deter trading intended to manipulate swap rates such as USD ISDAFIX, to ensure the integrity and reliability of the Bank’s benchmark submissions, and to improve related internal controls. Barclays, through its traders, bid, offered, and executed interest rate swap spread transactions in a manner deliberately designed – in timing, price, and other respects – to influence the published USD ISDAFIX to benefit the Bank in its derivatives positions, according to the Order. In addition, Barclays, through its employees making the Bank’s USD ISDAFIX submissions, also attempted to manipulate and made false reports concerning USD ISDAFIX by skewing the Bank’s submissions in order to benefit the Bank at the expense of its derivatives counterparties and customers. The Order recognizes Barclays’ significant cooperation with the CFTC during the investigation of this matter. The Order also notes that the civil monetary penalty imposed on Barclays reflects the Bank’s early resolution of this matter.

10:15 EDTBCSBarclays to pay $400M penalty to settle CFTC forex charges
The CFTC issued an Order filing and settling charges against Barclays Bank for attempted manipulation, false reporting, and aiding and abetting other banks’ attempts to manipulate, global foreign exchange benchmark rates to benefit the positions of certain traders. This Order requires Barclays to pay a civil monetary penalty of $400M, cease and desist from further violations, and take specified steps to implement and strengthen its internal controls and procedures, including the supervision of its FX traders, to ensure the integrity of its participation in the fixing of foreign exchange benchmark rates and internal and external communications by traders. The Order notes that the $400M civil monetary penalty reflects in part that Barclays did not settle at an earlier stage of the investigation. In addition to the charges related to Barclays’ misconduct in FX benchmark rates, the Commission took enforcement action against Barclays and its affiliates on the same charges relating to abuses of the ISDAFIX benchmark. The Order recognizes the significant cooperation of Barclays during the CFTC’s Division of Enforcement’s investigation of this matter.
