New York and over forty other states announced a $100 million dollar settlement with Citibank to resolve allegations that the bank fraudulently manipulated U.S. Dollar LIBOR, a critical interest-rate benchmark that impacts global financial instruments worth trillions of dollars. The New York Attorney General’s Office led the investigation, which found evidence that Citibank made material misrepresentations and omissions regarding the LIBOR benchmark to state and local governments, as well as non-profit, private, and institutional counterparties. The states alleged that Citibank entered numerous LIBOR-referenced transactions without disclosing that it had reason to believe that its own LIBOR submissions did not accurately represent its borrowing rates.
