Seven banks—including Bank of America Corp., Barclays Bank Plc, and Citigroup Inc.—agreed to pay $324 million to settle claims they conspired to rig the ISDAfix benchmark, which is used in the sale of interest-rate derivatives and other financial instruments.

The settlements follow a ruling by U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan rejecting the banks’ request that he throw out the claims. Furman said in March that a group of investors led by an Alaska pension fund had raised “plausible allegations that a conspiracy among the defendants existed” and allowed the suit to go forward.
