NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
The law firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP is investigating possible violations
of federal securities laws by officers and directors of Barclays PLC
(Barclays) (NYSE: BCS).
On June 25, 2014, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced
a lawsuit against Barclays alleging that the British banking and
financial services firm misled large institutional investors and other
clients in connection with the operation and marketing of the firm's
"dark pool." Specifically, the complaint filed in New York state court
alleges that Barclays' Equities Electronic Trading Division defrauded
clients by, among other things, concealing biased order routing
practices, misleading clients concerning their exposure to predatory
high frequency trading, and improperly disclosing confidential
information concerning the dark pool to high frequency traders,
including information on the identity and trading activity of other
traders. According to the Attorney General, the complaint describes "a
flagrant pattern of fraud, deception and dishonesty with Barclays
cliens and the investing public."
On the above news, Barclays shares have fallen over 6% in trading on
June 26, 2014.
