Goodman & Nekvasil P.A., May Recover Investor Losses – Gregory James Bolduc (Gregory Bolduc) Formerly Licensed with Unionbanc Investment Services, LLC, Suspended from Securities Industry
From 2012 until 2013, Gregory Bolduc was licensed with Unionbanc Investment Services, LLC. Gregory Bolduc was also licensed with Securities America, Inc. and Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC. According to FINRA’s records, Gregory Bolduc resigned from Unionbanc Investment Services, LLC on October 1, 2013. Unionbanc Investment Services reported to FINRA that the Firm requires investment disclosure forms for certain products it offers and that these forms require original client signatures be obtained on each form. Unionbanc Investment Services, LLC reported to FINRA that during a routine branch exam it was noted that original signatures had not been obtained, as the Firm’s policy requires. Unionbanc Investment Services, LLC reported to FINRA that instead of original signatures, Gregory Bolduc photocopied the client’s signature page of an original disclosure document and had affixed the photocopied page to several different disclosure documents, in violation of Firm policy.
Subsequent to Gregory Bolduc’s firing by Unionbanc Investment Services, LLC, FINRA investigated Gregory Bolduc and brought a disciplinary action against Gregory Bolduc. Gregory Bolduc was suspended for 3 months from the securities and investment banking industry and fined $5,000 on February 23, 2015. FINRA reports that Gregory Bolduc consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that Gregory Bolduc falsified the signatures of six customers on a total of 30 “Mutual Fund Customer Disclosure and Acknowledgement” forms (“Disclosure Forms”) which Gregory Bolduc submitted to Gregory Bolduc’s member firm as authentic signatures of the customers. FINRA reports that Gregory Bolduc submitted 30 disclosure forms to the Firm that contained photocopied signatures of the customers rather than authentic signatures. Specifically, Gregory Bolduc had each customer sign one disclosure form for all of the mutual funds in the portfolio. Next, Gregory Bolduc photocopied the signature page on the signed disclosure form and attached it as the signature page to the remaining mutual fund disclosure forms. Gregory Bolduc then submitted the disclosure forms to the Firm purporting that each signature page contained an authentic signature of the customer.
