Published reports indicate that Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., and other investment banks have been sued for conspiring to control the “stock lending” market, affecting investor’s short-selling stocks.  

Published reports indicate that Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., and other investment banks have been sued for conspiring to control the “stock lending” market, affecting investor’s short-selling stocks.  The suit claims that, by stifling a shift to an electronic lending system, the defendants inflated the fees paid by short sellers engaging in stock lending transactions with the defendants.

Most short-sellers engage in such transactions, and the case alleges that the practices complained of injured anyone participating into a securities lending transaction with the defendants since January 2009.  The defendants include Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Bank of America Corp., Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse Group AG, and UBS AG.
