Federal prosecutors in Manhattan sent requests for information to some banks that had worked with the investment firm, the report said https://bloom.bg/2QVsCyV, citing people familiar with the matter.

It is unclear what potential violations or entities were being examined, the report added

Archegos, a family office run by ex-Tiger Asia manager Bill Hwang, defaulted on margin calls in March, which left banks nursing heavy losses after a fire sale of shares, including ViacomCBS (NASDAQ:VIAC) and Discovery (NASDAQ:DISCA) Inc, had been meant to act as collateral.

Credit Suisse (SIX:CSGN) lost more than $5 billion and Japan’s Nomura lost almost $3 billion. U.S. banks such as Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), which also acted as brokers for Archegos, suffered much lower losses.

A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan declined to comment. Archegos could not be reached for a comment.
