On September 27, 2011, the SEC filed an order instituting proceedings against RBC Capital Markets. The SEC alleged that the company violated the Securities Act by "negligently selling the CDO Investments to the School Districts, despite significant concerns within RBCCM about the suitability of the product for municipalities like the School Districts. These CDO Investments were unsuitable for the School Districts. RBCCM's marketing materials also failed to explain adequately the risks associated with the CDO Investments." The company submitted an offer that the SEC accepted. As a result of the proceedings RBC must cease and desist from committing any violations and is required to pay disgorgement, pre-judgment interest and a civil penalty.
