Connecticut resident banned from securities industry by SEC based on a Maine consent order


PORTLAND, Maine — The federal Securities and Exchange Commission is barring a Connecticut resident from the securities industry based on a consent order filed by Maine officials.

The Securities and Exchange Commission says 60-year-old Thomas Renison of Glastonbury founded and operated an unregistered firm in Hartford, Connecticut called Connecticut Financial Group.

The commission also says Renison consented to an order from Maine officials that says he committed at least five violations of the Maine Uniform Securities Act. Maine's order says Renison engaged in "fraudulent and deceptive conduct."

The SEC issued its order on Thursday. Renison told The Associated Press that he has not yet seen the order and couldn't comment on it.
