The Securities and Exchange Commission fined Bloomberg Finance LP $5 million to settle civil charges accusing the company of misleading customers on how it calculated the prices of certain securities, the agency said Monday.

The SEC found that the company failed to disclose the methodologies it used to value certain fixed-income securities to users of its paid subscription service, BVAL, from at least 2016 through October 2022.
