Barclays announced today that it is putting aside an extra £800m in provisions for the fall out of the Forex scandal.
The extra £800m makes it the bank with the second largest pool of provisional cash – after JP Morgan.
The extra provisions bring the total set aside by the six banks to £5.1bn. In Novemeber, JP Morgan revealed it had set aside an extra £813m, after the Department of Justice (DoJ) announced an investigation into the rate-rigging scandal.
That followed a number of similar probes by regulators, including the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in the US.
