US: A U.S. regulator on Thursday doled out a record reward of nearly $200 million to a whistle-blower who provided information for a case involving the rigging of crucial financial benchmarks, according to the agency and a law firm involved in the award.
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)announced the award in a statement on Thursday, but did not disclose the recipient or details about the case or the precise amount.
Law firm Kirby (NYSE:KEX) McInerney LLP said in a statement its client scored the record bounty after providing extensive information and documents in 2012 that “catalyzed” investigations by the CFTC and a foreign regulator into benchmark manipulation.
Eurozone: A record proportion of the British public thinks inflation will accelerate over the next 12 months, according to data that could further boost expectations that the Bank of England will raise interest rates next month.
Some 48% of people surveyed this month by consumer research firm GfK expected prices to increase more rapidly over the next 12 months, up from 34% in September, the figures seen exclusively by Reuters showed.
It marked the highest share since records began in January 1985, when Margaret Thatcher was prime minister and more than a decade before the BoE became operationally independent.
The surge in inflation expectations follows a month of rocketing gas prices that have caused the collapse of several British energy suppliers, leaving households faced with the prospect of hefty bills in 2022.
Global supply chain problems as the world economy reopens from COVID-19 lockdowns and labour shortages, exacerbated by Brexit, have added to Britain’s recent inflationary tilt.
