World - Lloyds not off hook yet after $370 million Libor fines

By Matt Scuffham and Huw Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Lloyds Banking Group could face further punishment after agreeing to pay fines totaling $370 million for its part in a global interest rate rigging scandal and for attempting to manipulate fees for a government lending scheme to help banks. This special liquidity scheme (SLS), launched in 2008, was an attempt to free up banks` balance sheets and boost confidence in the financial system. Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said in a July 15 letter to Lloyds` chairman Norman Blackwell the attempted manipulation could lead to criminal action against those involved. He said Britain`s financial regulator would consider whether further action should be taken against Lloyds or the individuals involved.

Business - U.S. services sector activity accelerates in July: Markit

Financial data firm Markit said its preliminary services Purchasing Managers Index was 61.0 in July, unchanged from June and above expectations for a reading of 59.8. A reading above 50 signals expansion in economic activity, and June`s reading was the highest final reading since the survey began in October 2009. The services sector continued to add employees, though at a slower pace. `Nonetheless, service sector companies continue to perform strongly against post-recession trends, and overall the latest manufacturing and services PMI surveys suggest that the US economy has enjoyed a strong start to the second half of 2014.` Markit`s final composite PMI, a weighted average of its manufacturing and services indexes, dipped to 60.9 from June`s reading of 61, a level that also represented a record high for a final reading.

Britain`s Lloyds Banking Group is to pay £218 million ($370 million, 276 million euros) in fines to British and US regulators for attempting to rig inter-bank lending rates, the bank said Monday. `LBG announces that it has reached settlements totalling £218 million to resolve with UK and US federal authorities legacy issues regarding the manipulation several years ago of group companies` submissions to the British Bankers` Association (BBA) London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and Sterling Repo Rate,` it said in a brief statement. The Libor scandal erupted two years ago when British bank Barclays was fined £290 million by British and US regulators for attempted manipulation of Libor and Euribor interbank rates between 2005 and 2009.

Business - Lloyds Bank fined $370 million for rigging Libor interest rates

By Matt Scuffham and Huw Jones LONDON/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Britain`s Lloyds Banking Group has agreed to pay fines totaling $370 million to U.S. and British authorities investigating its part in a global interest rate rigging scandal and manipulating fees for a UK government lending scheme. The penalties for Lloyds comprise a 105 million pound ($178 million) fine by Britain`s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), $105 million by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and a $86 million fine by the U.S. Department of Justice. The FCA said there had been routine manipulation of sterling Libor submissions to benefit money market trading positions between September 2006 and June 2009. To avoid negative media comment and market perceptions of its financial strength, Bank of Scotland, which Lloyds later acquired, manipulated Libor submissions as a result of at least two management directives in September and October 2008, the FCA said.
