Civil Money Penalty

A fine assessed by a court on a person or entity that has profited from violations of securities law and regulation. For example, if a broker makes illegal insider trades from information gleaned from a client, he/she may have to pay a civil money penalty. Ordinarily, the civil money penalty is equal to the profit that the violator made from his/her activities.
