Bank Leumi to pay $1.6 million over 'unregistered' cross-border business

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Bank Leumi (LUMI.TA) will pay $1.6 million and admit to wrongdoing to settle civil charges that it provided investment advice and solicited investments from U.S. customers for more than a decade without registering with federal regulators, U.S. authorities said on Tuesday.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission said the Israeli bank maintained “several hundred securities accounts” and managed more than $500 million in securities for U.S. customers, even though it failed to register as required by U.S. law.
