The Securities and Exchange Commission’s next huge settlement could come from British/U.S.-based Amvescap, London’s Financial Times reports. People privy to discussions between the two parties postulate that a settlement could take place just after Sept. 6, Labor Day in the United States.

Share prices have risen over the past few days, as hot-stove talk about a possible settlement has turned up. According to a document back in April, Amvescap had set aside $300 million to cover settlement costs relating to its US-based Invesco outfit. But The Times reports that since Janus’s recent settlement was for $200 million – including money returned to investors, paid in restitution and shelled out in civil penalties – the Amvescap number could be lower than that $300 million set aside.
