News summary by MFWire's editors

. If you're thinking of breaking into floating-rate bank loan funds, you might want to pay attention to this regulatory migraine.

Reuters reports that FINRA has ordered the brokerage arms of Wells Fargo & Co. and Bank of America Corp to pay, in total, $5 million in reimbursement and fines for selling floating-rate bank loan funds.

In specific, FINRA ordered Wells Fargo Advisors LLC to reimburse about $2 million and pay an additional $1.25 million in fine. It also asked Bank of America'sMerrill Lynch unit to reimburse about $1.1 million and pay $900,000 in fines.

According to the newswire, FINRA levied the penalties because "the risk tolerance limit and financial conditions of their customers did not justify the purchases."
