Investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have found that traders and sales people had made false and misleading statements while negotiating sales of commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS), resulting in customers overpaying for the CMBS.  Deutsche Bank failed to have compliance and surveillance procedures in place to reasonably prevent and detect the misconduct, and had increased the firm’s profits at the expense of clients.

Former head trader of Deutsche Bank’s CMBS trading desk, Benjamin Solomon did not take appropriate actions, despite being made aware of the misrepresentation.  Benjamin has agreed to pay a penalty of $165,000 while Deutsche Bank has agreed to pay $750,000.  The SEC investigation was conducted by the Complex Financial Instruments Unit and the New York Regional Office.
