Episode 236 — The Glencore FCPA and Fraud Settlement

In a long-anticipated and major enforcement action, the Justice Department and the Commodities and Futures Trading Commission resolved a sprawling investigation with Glencore International A.G. and Glencore Ltd, a Swiss-based commodity trading and mining company.

Glencore entered guilty pleas for FCPA violations and a commodity price manipulation scheme. Glencore paid over $1.1 billion to resolve these two major investigations.

The resolution in the U.S. was part of a coordinated set of criminal and civil resolutions involving the United States, the United Kingdom and Brazil.

In this Episode, Michael Volkov reviews the settlement and the implications for future enforcement actions.
