June 2008 Employment Separation After Allegations

Firm Name: LPL Financial Corporation

Termination Type: Permitted to Resign

Allegations: Mr. Beaudoin resigned during the course of the firm’s internal review concerning violations of firm rules. The firm reviewed documents reflecting Mr. Beaudoin referred individuals to an investment not held or offered by them.

Broker Comment: In 2008, I was invited to dinner by a former colleague to meet potential clients for my investment management business and unbeknownst to me, he gave a presentation on a private placement. My broker dealer began a review process and questioned what took place at the dinner. At the time of their review I was in the process of resigning to partner with another broker dealer. FINRA reviewed the matter and closed their inquiry without taking any further action.
