SETTLING CHARGES: JPMorgan Chase and Credit Suisse have agreed to pay a combined $417 million to settle federal civil charges that they sold risky mortgage bonds to investors ahead of the 2008 financial crisis that the banks knew could fail.

PROFITING FROM PRACTICES: The banks also failed to properly disclose their practices that allowed them to profit while investors lost millions, the Securities and Exchange Commission said.

MAKING PAYMENTS: JPMorgan is paying $296.9 million and Credit Suisse will pay $120 million. The banks agreed to settle the charges without admitting or denying wrongdoing.
