HSBC Holdings Plc
The preliminary settlements were disclosed in filings on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan and require a judge`s approval. They boost the total payout from 10 settling banks to $408.5 million. HSBC and UBS denied wrongdoing.
Several pension funds and municipalities had accused 14 banks of conspiring to rig the ISDAfix benchmark for their own gain from at least 2009 to 2012.
Companies and investors use ISDAfix to price swaps transactions, commercial real estate mortgages and structured debt securities.
The eight earlier settlements have won preliminary approval.
Payouts include $56.5 million from Goldman Sachs Group Inc
