UBS fined £29.7m by FSA over Kweku Adoboli case


The Financial Services Authority (FSA) has fined UBS £29.7m ($47.6m) for failings that led to trader Kweku Adoboli losing £1.4bn.

The fine, the third largest imposed by the FSA, was for "system and control failings" that allowed him to trade in London well beyond authorised limits.

The trader was last week convicted of two counts of fraud and sentenced to seven years in prison.
