SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore said on Thursday it had levied an S$11.2 million ($8 million) fine on Swiss bank UBS after investigations showed its advisors deceived clients over prices for bonds and structured products.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) said UBS (S:) had reported certain malpractices in Hong Kong and Singapore in 2016.
“The enforcement action followed UBS’ reporting of the misconduct to MAS…UBS has admitted liability for its client advisors’ actions and paid MAS the civil penalty,” MAS said in a statement.
“As part of the civil penalty settlement, UBS will compensate all affected clients managed by UBS’ Singapore branch.”
