IIROC to Hold Settlement Hearing for Former Winnipeg Investment Advisor Joseph Marcel Denis (Denis) Rochon


WINNIPEG, Jan. 16, 2020 /CNW/ - A hearing has been scheduled before a Hearing Panel of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) to consider whether the panel should accept a Settlement Agreement entered into between IIROC staff and Joseph Marcel Denis (Denis) Rochon.

The hearing concerns allegations that Mr. Rochon failed to know some of his clients, who were seniors with limited investment knowledge. It is alleged that he failed to use due diligence to ensure that his recommendations were suitable for the clients when he pursued a concentrated growth strategy that was contrary to their true financial circumstances.

The hearing is not open to the public, but will become open in the event that the panel accepts the agreement. If the agreement is accepted, the Panel's decision and the Settlement Agreement will be made available at www.iiroc.ca.

Hearing Date: January 20, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.

Location: Radisson Hotel 288 Portage Avenue Ambassadors D Winnipeg, MB R3C 0B8

IIROC formally initiated the investigation into Mr. Rochon's conduct in July 2015. The alleged violations occurred while he was a Registered Representative with a Winnipeg branch of Industrial Alliance Securities Inc., an IIROC-regulated firm. Mr. Rochon is no longer a registrant with an IIROC-regulated firm.

The Notice of Motion announcing the settlement hearing is available at:
