In the Matter of J.P. Morgan Securities LLC
On December 17, 2021, the SEC instituted settled cease-and-desist proceedings against J.P. Morgan Securities LLC stating: "The federal securities laws impose recordkeeping requirements on broker-dealers to ensure that they responsibly discharge their crucial role in our markets . . . These proceedings arise out of the widespread and longstanding failure of JPMorgan employees throughout the firm, including those at senior levels, to adhere to certain of these essential requirements. These employees communicated both internally and externally via personal text messages, WhatsApp messages, and emails on their personal devices."
