(Reuters) - The New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) on Tuesday fined Standard Chartered Plc STAN.L $40 million (£30.5 million) for attempting to rig transactions in foreign exchange markets between 2007 and 2013, the regulator said in a statement.

Separately, the bank said it had agreed a consent order regarding “past control failures and improper conduct” in its foreign exchange trading and sales business during the period.
