FINRA requires brokers and brokerage firms to report customer complaints and disputes as well as regulatory sanctions. In addition brokers are required to disclose certain financial matters such as personal bankruptcies, judgments and liens.
In 6/2022 Sonville was suspended by FINRA for six weeks and fined him $5,000, to resolve allegations that he loaned money to a customer of Merrill Lynch while he was still employed there, in violation of firm procedures and policies. In addition, Sonville submitted to the the firm a compliance questionnaire in which he falsely stated that he had not loaned money to any customer. Sonville began working for Merrill Lynch in 2/1995 and was discharged in 6/2021 for making a loan to a customer and failure to disclose an outside business activity.
Sonville was employed by Insigneo Securities from 7/2021-7/2022.
