Without admitting or denying the findings, BGC Financial consented to the entry of findings that it failed, within 90 seconds after execution, to transmit last sale reports of transactions in designated securities to the FINRA/NASDAQ Trade Reporting Facility (TRF). The findings further stated that BGC Financial failed to report the correct symbol indicating the capacity in which it executed transactions in reportable securities to the TRF, and also failed to report the correct execution time for transactions in reportable securities. This is not the first time that BGC Financial has been investigated by a regulatory agency for possible securities violations or securities fraud.
