Has anyone heard of any firms that frown upon cold calling.  I'm very familiar with the laws of phone solicitations in general and the specific ones to the brokerage business.

Firms tend to frown upon and “empty bucket” as opposed to the means by which one fills said bucket. Not an issue.

Credit Union firms will typically frown upon cold-calling outside their membership base. 

They want to be known as a "service organization" in the community, not sales.   And yes, it's stupid.
