HoHoHo: Rogue bank kanna fined again

(Updated on 10 April at 5am:  StanChart will pay US and UK authorities US$1.1bn to settle charges that it violated sanctions and ignored red flags about its customers: more than expected. It’s deferred prosecution deal with the US marshals extended until 2021. Ho Ho Ho.)

Standard Chartered is bracing itself for a bumper fine this week that could total hundreds of millions of pounds as it settles US charges over Iranian sanctions violations.

The London-headquartered but Asia-focused bank is expected to draw a line under a long-running investigation into sanctions busting by Wednesday when a six-year deferred prosecution agreement (DPA) with US authorities is set to expire.

DPAs allow firms to settle charges with state authorities without facing criminal prosecution. The companies must agree to specified conditions, which can include a fine and their conduct being monitored for a set period.

    StanChart has long provisioned for this already (ie. put aside previous years profits). This $1 billion amount does not affect its CURRENT profitability, or its solvency and capital ratios. The financial markets have also discounted this also and since they are forward looking, StanChart’s share price will do well since this is out of the way. The bank’s economic fundamentals remain sound.
