UBS fined $1.5 billion over Libor

FILE - In this March 19, 2012 file photo the logo of the Swiss bank UBS is pictured behind a statue in Zurich, Switzerland. UBS AG agreed Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012 to pay some US$1.5 billion in fines to international regulators following a probe into the rigging of a key global interest rate. In admitting to fraud, Switzerland's largest bank became the second bank, after Britain's Barclays PLC, to settle over the rate-rigging scandal. The fine, which will be paid to authorities in the U.S., Britain and Switzerland, also comes just over a week after HSBC PLC agreed to pay nearly US$2 billion for alleged money laundering.
