HSBC Holdings Plc has settled claims by a group of U.S. bondholders that it conspired with rivals to rig the Libor benchmark interest rate, according to a New York court filing on Monday by the bondholders’ attorneys.
The filing did not disclose the terms of the settlement, which it said must be approved by U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan federal court.
“We are pleased the matter is resolved,” said HSBC spokesman Rob Sherman. He did not comment on the terms of the deal.
Lawyers for the bondholders could not immediately be reached.
