JP Morgan Chase will pay $ 307 million as a fine to regulatory authorities. The reason of such decision of the regulators is that the bank did not disclose the information about conflicts of interests to investors in the implementation of its own advertising investment products to clients.

The bank will pay $ 267 million to the Commission on Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as pleads guilty . The bank also will pay $ 40 million fine to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and gives $ 60 million profit that was obtained illegally.

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Labor has proposed new rules that aimed at strengthening disclosure for retail investors.
