Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc paid 30 million euros ($37 million) to a businessman to settle claims it improperly sold him an interest-rate swap, the Sunday Telegraph reported, without saying where it got the information.
The deal resolved a lawsuit between RBS’s Ulster Bank in Ireland and Dublin-based customer David Agar, the newspaper reported.
In his lawsuit, Agar alleged RBS’s London-based investment banking unit improperly sold him 87 million euros of interest- rate hedging products linked to a 47-million euro property loan, according to Sunday Telegraph.
RBS spokeswoman Nicky Harris didn’t immediately respond to a voicemail left on her office phone today, outside of regular business hours.
