Robinhood Financial LLC will pay $65 million to resolve an SEC investigation into its disclosures regarding the firm’s receipt of “payment for order flow” – payments from trading firms for routing customer orders to them – as well as its alleged failure to secure best execution on customer orders.  According to the SEC, while Robinhood advertised to customers that trades were “commission-free,” it steered customer orders to trading firms that paid Robinhood for order flow but provided inferior trade prices to Robinhood customers, thereby misrepresenting the true cost of trades.  SEC; See 2021 FINRA penalty
