Agents from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation met with Deutsche Bank trader Robert Wallden as part of probe into alleged manipulation of currency markets, according to a person briefed on the matter.
Bloomberg reports that during a visit to Wallden’s home the agents showed him excerpts of electronic communication that suggested he considered himself able to manipulate the markets, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. Deutsche Bank hasn’t suspended Wallden because there is no evidence he tried to rig foreign exchange prices, the person said.
Deutsche Bank is cooperating with regulators investigating currency markets, it said in an e-mailed statement to Bloomberg Thursday.
