Banking Cartel

Ius submitted on January 18, 2024, at the Portuguese Competition Court, five popular actions aimed at demanding that 12 banks acting in Portugal compensate consumers for the damages caused by a cartel in violation of EU competition law, already declared by the Portuguese Competition Authority. The “banking cartel” involved a continuous exchange of sensitive information regarding prices and other commercial conditions of mortgages, consumer and SME(s) credit, for 11 years, from 2002 to 2013 (the relevant period). 

The Competition Court has preliminarily accepted all five actions filed by Ius and has ordered the Defendants to be served and the consumers to be notified.
