The findings stated that Francoeur’s member firm filed a Form U5 stating that he was discharged after he assisted a client with an investment not approved by the firm and communicated through unapproved email, both in violation of firm policy.”
Francoeur has been the subject of one customer complaint in 2019 that was denied, according to his CRD report.
