Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Losses on Promissory Notes or Other Investments - Gerard Anthony Fagnant (Gerard Fagnant) a/k/a Gerad Anthony Fagnant of LPL Financial LLC Barred from Securities Industry
Gerard Fagnant was licensed with LPL Financial LLC from 2011 to 2015. Gerard Fagnant was previously licensed with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. Gerard Fagnant was barred from the securities and investment banking industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) on April 19, 2016. FINRA reports that Gerard Fagnant consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that while associated with a firm, Gerard Fagnant improperly accepted five loans totaling $325,000 from firm customers with notifying or receiving approval from Gerard Fagnant’s firm. The findings stated that of the $325,000 loaned to Gerard Fagnant by customers “CA” and “JA”, a married couple, the customers obtained $300,000 from their brokerage account. According to FINRA, the customers wrote five checks to Gerard Fagnant, which Gerard Fagnant then deposited into Gerard Fagnant’s personal bank account held outside of the firm. The findings also stated that after a few months, Gerard Fagnant ceased making interest only payments to the customer and to date the principal balance remains outstanding. The findings also included that Gerard Fagnant’s firm’s written policies and procedures precluded Gerard Fagnant from accepting such loans and Gerard Fagnant falsely represented on two firm compliance questionnaires that Gerard Fagnant was in compliance with the firm’s policies and procedures concerning lending arrangements and promissory notes.
FINRA reports that two complaints involving Gerard Fagnant’s conduct with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. and a prior employer were filed, alleging Gerard Fagnant failed to add a rider to a client’s annuity and/or that Gerard Fagnant recommended customers invest in a private promissory note which was subsequently never repaid. Both claims settled, with the larger claim settling for $217,500.
