- Excerpt from International General:

55. The American Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (Finra) has handed out some of its toughest penalties, fining a number of Wall Street banks $1 million each for providing inaccurate information. The fines are in relation to electronic "blue sheet" data that brokers and dealers are required to provide to US watchdogs during investigations into forms of suspicious activity, such as insider trading. There was however no suggestion from Finra that lapses were wilful or intentional. Fines were handed to Barclays, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and Pierce, Fenner & Smith, a division of Bank of America.
