The SEC and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) announced an assessment of a $5,000,000 fine
against Merrill Lynch for misleading information relating to its strategic return notes. Merrill Lynch sold over $168,000,000 worth of these
notes to customers, which were promoted as a hedge against declines in the financial markets. FINRA
determined that Merrill Lynch failed to disclose quarterly transaction costs of 1.5% per quarter.
