The Federal Court has heard a series of recorded conversations in which Westpac staff allegedly discussed strategies for manipulating the bank bill swap rate. The taped conversations were part of the Australian Securities & Investments Commission’s evidence against the bank, which has elected to contest the allegations of market manipulation rather than agree to a settlement. Other evidence tendered in court by ASIC included email messages from Westpac staff and the minutes from Australian Financial Markets Association meetings.
