Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-and-Desist Proceedings, Pursuant to Sections 15(b) and 21C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings, and Imposing Remedial Sanctions and a Cease-and-Desist Order
According to the SEC, "These proceedings arise out of BGC's violations of the books and records provisions of the Exchange Act. First, in June of 2014, BGC deleted audio files for the recorded lines of eight registered representatives that were responsive to requests from the Commission staff for these records. As detailed below, the deletion of these audio files occurred because BGC's audio system personnel were not made aware of the existence of the Commission staff's requests. Second, in the instances detailed below, BGC failed to maintain books and records that accurately recorded certain transactions concerning compensation, travel, entertainment, and other expenses."
