According to records published by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority
(FINRA), Kerby was terminated from Edward Jones in November 2017 for misusing
client funds for his own benefit.
FINRA followed up with a regulatory examination of the alleged misconduct,
and Kirby refused to cooperate. Because he would not provide the regulator
with requested information, he is permanently barred from the securities
industry. Matthew Kerby was registered with Edward Jones from 2007 to
2017 before being permanently barred from the industry earlier this month.
While most financial advisors are reliable and trustworthy people, some

be particularly vulnerable to this type of misconduct. You can learn more
