"FINMA concluded that the individuals in question were directly responsible for the serious breaches of regulation at UBS in this business, as communicated in 2014," FINMA said in a statement on Thursday.

Four other enforcement proceedings against UBS traders were discontinued in August, FINMA said.

UBS said in May it had settled a probe by U.S. authorities over alleged rigging of currency markets by agreeing to pay $545 million in combined fines.
