LONDON Feb 12 (Reuters) - Swiss bank UBS has been fined 9.45 million pounds ($14.80 million) by Britain's financial regulator for exposing customers to unacceptable risk when it sold a fund.

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) said on Tuesday the Swiss-based bank, which was last year fined $1.5 billion for rigging benchmark interest rates, also failed to deal properly with customer complaints about the sale of the AIG Enhanced Variable Rate Fund.
