Citigroup Inc. said it was told by the Securities and Exchange Commission that the agency has completed its investigation of the bank's conduct regarding mortgage bonds and won't bring further enforcement action.

Citigroup said in a regulatory filing on Friday that it received the information from the SEC this week.
