Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Sections 203(e) and 203(k) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, Making Findings, and Imposing Remedial Sanctions and a Cease-and-Desist Order
On September 23, 2014 the SEC instituted settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings against Barclays Capital Inc. According to the SEC: "This matter concerns violations of the Advisers Act by BCI, a dually-registered investment adviser and broker-dealer, arising from systemic failures at BCI after it acquired Lehman Brothers Inc.'s ('Lehman's') advisory business in September 2008. When BCI attempted to integrate this advisory business into its existing business, it did not take the necessary steps to assure that its infrastructure was enhanced to support the newly acquired advisory business, it failed to adopt and implement written policies and procedures reasonably designed to prevent violations of the Advisers Act, and it failed to make and keep certain required books and records.
