Former National Australia Bank trader Brock Johnson has admitted that he was not aware of the rules governing the bank bill swap rate (BBSW). NAB, like the ANZ Bank, has settled with the Australian Securities & Investments Commission over allegations that they tried to rig the BBSW, but ASIC is still pursuing its case against Westpac over the matter. Johnson has told the Federal Court that he had not read the Australian Financial Markets Association’s rules concerning the BBSW.
