Credit Suisse is investigating two of its traders in London over allegations of misconduct.

BBC News reports two employees on its European equities sales team are under scrutiny over their electronic communications.

One trader is said to have improperly shared client information with her husband, who works at a rival bank.

Bloomberg reports that the investigation also unearthed evidence of other employees on the desk using racist and profane language as well as watching sex videos in the workplace, the Wall Street Journal said.

'We cannot comment on employee matters under investigation,' it said in a statement. 'However, any allegations of this nature are taken very seriously at Credit Suisse.'

The Wall Street Journal first reported that an experienced trader on the European stock training desk had been suspended since February, and that her boss was also on leave as part of the probe.
