Financial Advisor Christopher Hibbard (Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith) Customer Complaints

The Wolper Law Firm, P.A. is currently investigating claims against Christopher Hibbard, a former Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch in Louisville, Kentucky.  Christopher Hibbard first entered the securities industry in the 1990s and previously worked for Morgan Keegan & Cop and AG Edwards.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on February 2018, FINRA barred Christopher Hibbard from associating with a broker dealer for failing to respond to a subpoena, requesting information.  This event fell on the heels of his termination by Merrill Lynch for “conduct including unauthorized transactions and theft.”


Since his termination, he has been the subject of six (6) customer complaints, alleging misrepresentation, theft, unauthorized trades and unsuitable investment recommendations.  All six customer complaints remain pending.
