Adoboli tells court bosses influenced trades

EX-trader Kweku Adoboli told a court yesterday his bosses at UBS, including senior executive Carsten Kengeter, had been pushing him to take more risks when he took positions that cost the Swiss bank $2.3bn. Adoboli, 32, was arrested on 15 September 2011. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of fraud and four of false accounting. The trial continues.
