Thomas Tousignant Allegedly Bought Variable Annuity Without Client Authorization

Sep 2, 2022 Unauthorized Trading

Thomas Tousignant (CRD #: 5137431), a broker registered with Securities America, was the subject of a recent dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on August 19, 2022. If you have questions about his conduct as a broker, read on.

Investor Dispute

On May 13, 2022, an investor alleged that Thomas Tousignant made an unauthorized purchase of a variable annuity in 2022. Variable annuities are complex investments that do not suit their investor’s needs. This dispute was denied by the firm.

However, investors should know that firms don’t need to permit an external review before denying disputes. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration after a denial and potentially recover their losses.

FINRA Rule 3260

Unauthorized trading violates FINRA Rule 3260, which limits brokers to exercising their trading discretion in pre-approved discretionary accounts.


On January 29, 2020, Thomas Tousignant’s bankruptcy was discharged.
