The ANZ Bank’s global head of treasury, Rick Moscati, is among six senior banking industry executives who will face criminal cartel charges arising from ANZ’s institutional share placement in 2015. Citigroup MD John McLean and the investment bank’s global head of foreign exchange trading, Itay Tuchman, have also been charged, as has Citi’s former Australian head, Stephen Roberts. Two former Deutsche Bank executives, Michael Ormaechea and Michael Richardson, also face charges following a two-year investigation by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission. The three banks will also be prosecuted for allegedly engaging in a cartel.
