Merrill Lynch Sanctioned $7 Million For Customer Account Handling

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on Wednesday fined Merrill Lynch $6.25 million and the firm will pay $780,000 in restitution for inadequate supervision of certain trading practices. The sanctions are related to oversight of accounts involving “leverage” or borrowing and high concentrations in Puerto Rican securities that led to losses. The firm also agreed to pay restitution to 22 customers as part of an agreement in which it neither admitted nor denied charges.
