US Fines HSBC

The US Federal Reserve fined HSBC $175 million on Friday for “unsafe and unsound practices” in its foreign exchange trading business, the latest in a series of fines for banks that fail to prevent market manipulation, Reuters reported. HSBC failed to monitor chat rooms where traders swapped information about investment positions, the US central bank said, echoing findings by other regulators investigating the $5 trillion-a-day foreign exchange or FX market. “The board levied the fine for deficiencies in HSBC’s oversight of and internal controls over FX traders,” the Fed said in a statement. The fine follows others of more than $4.3 billion levied by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission and Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority on six banks including HSBC in November 2014. Authorities accused HSBC dealers of sharing confidential information about client orders and coordinating trade to boost their own profits. The foreign exchange benchmark they allegedly manipulated is used by asset managers and corporate treasurers to value their holdings.
