The Massachusetts Secretary of State’s office says Swiss Bank UBS has reached a $19.4 billion agreement to buy back bonds to settle claims that it misled investors into buying high-risk securities.

The agreement has been reached between UBS Financial Services Inc. and the federal Securities and Exchange Commission and regulators in several states.

Brian McNiff, a spokesman for Secretary of State William Galvin, said an official announcement may not come until Monday. The deal was first disclosed on Friday in The Boston Globe.
