JB Oxford Holdings' trade processing unit, National Clearing Corp. (NCC), has agreed to pay $2.1 million to the Securities and Exchange Commission over allegations of abusive mutual fund trading.

Three former NCC executives have also settled with the SEC. James G. Lewis, former CEO, agreed to pay $200,000 and is banned from the brokerage industry for five years. Kraig L. Kibble, former director of compliance, will pay $50,000 and has been banned for four years. James Y. Lin, former vice president of correspondent services, agreed to a $35,000 fine and a three-year ban.
