4. -- Barclays (BCS) committed fraud in the sale and marketing of a "dark pool," an alternative trading platform used for large stock sales, according to charges brought by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
Schneiderman, in a press conference on Wednesday, argued Barclays falsely marketed its dark pool as being safe from what its internal marketing materials described as "predatory," "aggressive," and "toxic" activity by high-frequency traders.
The complaint cited internal emails in which Barclays employees deliberately withheld or changed information about its dark pool to make it appear safer and more attractive to prospective clients such as mutual funds.
