Former Signator Investors, Inc. Broker Joseph Pratte Permanently Barred From Securities Industry by Regulators

FINRA has permanently barred former Signator Investors broker Joseph Pratte after he refused to provide information in response to an investigation into allegations that he engaged in undisclosed outside business activities.

Pratte worked for Signator Investors from 1982 until December 18, 2017 when he was discharged for allegedly failing to disclose his participation in outside business activities. After Signator Investors reported the termination to the securities regulators, FINRA opened an investigation and requested additional information from Pratte. While Pratte admitted to receiving the requests, he asserted that he would not cooperate with the investigation. On May 1, 2018, he was permanently barred from acting as a broker or otherwise associating with a broker-dealer firm.
