SocGen is settling its American litigation. This has been expected for some time now: French bank Société Générale will pay $1.34 billion to the American authorities to close investigations into violations of the economic embargo imposed by Washington against Cuba, Iran and Sudan, starting as far back as 2003 and extending to 2013. This is a level in line with the provisions set aside by the bank.
