Former Merrill Lynch Broker Christopher Hibbard Barred for Dodging Regulatory Investigation - Faces Multiple Allegations of Client Theft

Former Merrill Lynch broker Christopher Hibbard has been permanently barred from the industry by FINRA after failing to respond to regulatory requests for information.

Hibbard was employed with Merrill Lynch Pierce, Fenner & Smith in Louisville, Kentucky for the last eight years. According to his BrokerCheck report, Hibbard was fired in January 2018 for "conduct including unauthorized transactions and theft."

The United States Attorney’s Office, Western District of Kentucky opened an investigation into his activities in April 2018. That investigation is still pending.

To date, there are eight pending customer complaints against Hibbard that allege the misappropriation of funds, fraud, and unauthorized withdrawals.
