RBS Said to Suspend Third Currency Trader Amid Internal Probe

Feb. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc suspended a third foreign-exchange trader amid an internal probe into the alleged manipulation of currencies, according to a person with knowledge of the decision.

Ian Drysdale, a senior currency trader who worked at the bank in London for more than three years, was put on leave this week, according to the person, who asked not to be identified while the probe continues.

RBS, Britain’s biggest publicly owned bank, suspended London-based traders Paul Nash and Julian Munson last year, a person with knowledge of the matter said in November.

Drysdale didn’t return messages left on his work phone and an e-mail seeking comment.

The Financial Times reported the suspension earlier today.
