(AP)- Barclays PLC and its subsidiaries will pay about $453 million to settle charges that they tried to manipulate interest rates that can affect how much people pay for loans to attend college or buy a house.

The incidents occurred between 2005 and 2009, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission said Wednesday.

Barclays will pay a $200 million civil penalty to the CFTC, the largest in the agency's history. Barclays also agreed to pay $160 million as part of an agreement with the Justice Department's criminal division on a related matter and nearly $93 million to British regulators.

Here is a look at other major settlements regulators have reached since the 2008 financial crisis.
