Bank of America investors say they’ve settled a lawsuit accusing the company of rigging prices in the foreign-exchange market.
Bloomberg News reports that the investors, several pension and hedge funds, didn’t reveal how much the bank would pay in a statement Thursday by their law firm, Scott & Scott, announcing the deal.
JPMorgan and UBS settled the same lawsuit earlier this year, agreeing to pay $99.5m and $135m, respectively.
The settlement couldn’t be immediately confirmed with the Manhattan federal court where the class-action suit was filed two years ago. A bid to dismiss the case was denied in January.
