The investors claimed that their losses were from the fixing of foreign exchange markets. The banks have already been slapped with heavy fines for their involvement in manipulating the forex markets by the Financial Conduct Authority and the U.S. Department of Justice.

David Scott of Scott + Scott stated “the settlement agreements we have entered into with nine banks go a long way to ensuring that they are being held accountable for their egregious manipulation of the foreign exchange market.”

Most, if not all, of the banks have factored large amounts for settlements into their budgets. There are still seven other banks being pursued for their participation, with some alleged to have manipulated the market since 2003.
