BNY Mellon overcharged Fidelity, US says

Federal prosecutors and New York’s attorney general filed civil fraud charges against BNY Mellon last year, alleging that the bank overcharged pension funds and investment managers for certain foreign currency trades and misled them about practices that generated $1.5 billion in revenues.
