According to reports, Ian Drysdale has suspended for four months following the suspensions of colleagues Julian Munson and Paul Nash.

Overall the global investigation into the ‘fixing’ of exchange rates in the $5.3 trillion-day forex market has seen 20 traders in the some of the largest investment banks across the world suspended or fired.
