Louisiana Broker Benjamin Bourgeois Jr. Barred By Finra In Investment Fraud Investigation

Regulatory officials from FINRA have barred Louisiana Broker-Advisor Benjamin Frank Bourgeois Jr. (CRD# 2145555) for failing to cooperate with an investigation into alleged investment fraud and misconduct.

Bourgeois was registered with broker-dealer Commonwealth Financial Network in Metairie, Louisiana from May 2015 until April 2019. 

Investment Misconduct Allegations & FINRA Bar

According to FINRA BrokerCheck, Bourgeois was terminated by Commonwealth Financial Network on April 1, 2019 over allegations that he borrowed money from a customer in violation of FINRA rules and the firm’s policy.  As part of FINRA’s investigation, it sent Bourgeois a request to provide documents and information, and Bourgeois did not comply.

Bourgeois was sued by a customer in the Eastern District of Louisiana on April 3, 2019, alleging that Bourgeois induced a 78-year-old widow to invest in sham investments in an entity called GHBC, which was a company owned and controlled by Bourgeois.  That case is currently pending.
