The Financial Conduct Authority has prohibited Paul Robson from performing any function with any entity subject to oversight by it. This is because, said the FCA, Mr. Robson engaged in “deliberate misconduct” when he attempted to manipulate the London interbank offered rate for Japanese yen from May 2006 to early 2011. In August 2014, Mr. Robson pleaded guilty to charges filed by the US Department of Justice related to his alleged wrongful conduct. Mr. Robson previously was employed by Rabobank as a money markets trader.
