Five more broker-dealers agreed to pay back more than US $18 million to retirement accounts and charities for overcharging them mutual fund sales charges following disciplinary actions filed by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. The firms were Edward D. Jones & Co., Stifel Nicolaus & Company, Inc., Janney Montgomery Scott, LLC, AXA Advisors, LLC and Stephens Inc. Earlier this year, FINRA filed a similar action and affected US $30 million in restitution for similar conduct by five other broker-dealers.
