Bradley Davis 
Financial Advisor

I started my career with American Express Advisors in West Des Moines, Iowa, in 2004. After becoming a Financial Advisor for American Express, I worked my way up to become an Advisor Coach. My job as a coach was to help teach new advisors coming into the business. American Express Advisors eventually became Ameriprise and at that time I opened an Ameriprise Franchise office in West Des Moines where I ran my practice until 2009 when I joined INVEST Financial Corporation.

In 2012, I purchased a financial advisory business in Minnesota which has grown to where we now serve 4 communities, including Le Sueur, Belle Plaine, Henderson, and Le Center, where I have the priviledge of working with my amazing team of associates. In 2016, we chose to affiliate our practice with Focus Financial, which was established in 1993 as a network of independent financial advisors delivering financial planning, asset management, and financial education services.

In addition to working as an independent Financial Advisor on behalf of my clients, I also manage our financial planning practice of Focus Financial - KMF Advisors.

I hold the series 7 and 66 securities registrations and I am registered in 11 states: AZ, CO, FL, IA, MN, NE, PA, TX, UT, WI, WY. I hold an IAR registration in 7 states: FL, IA, MN, PA, TX, WI, and WY. I am Insurance Licensed in 5 states: FL, IA, MN, PA, and WI.

My wife, Danielle, and I live in Le Sueur, Minnesota, with our three boys. I am currently a member of the Le Sueur Chamber and the Le Sueur Lions Club.


Stephan Kerby
Financial Advisor

As many people do, I fell into the career of Financial Advisor after a variety of life experiences created a desire to learn more about personal finance.  After my college basketball career at Keene State College in NH, I moved abroad to become a professional basketball player. As I worked and traveled, I spent a lot of time contemplating how to manage my family’s finances with a new baby on the way and a job on the road.  Even when seeking advice, I realized that those around me also had little knowledge or understanding on many financial topics.  This reality created a new-found passion for educating myself and others, on the topic of investments and financial planning.

I began my career of financial planning in early 2000. And in 2009, I started my own firm, IFB Wealth Management, in order to be an independent financial advisor.  Now I am currently a partner at KMF Advisors where I manage the branch office in West Des Moines, IA as well as provide holistic financial planning to my own personal clients. 

I take tremendous pride in focusing on understanding my clients’ wants and needs in order to educate them and guide them through the complexity of personal finance. The goal is to provide the client with knowledge and tools to navigate complicated financial topics and jargon, empowering them to make informed financial decisions.

Uniquely, many of my clients live all across the United States.  Therefore, I hold the Series 7 and 66 securities registrations and I am registered in several states: FL, IA, IN, KY, MA, ME, NC, NH, OH. 

My wife Amber and I keep busy with our son and daughter and our two great dogs. We enjoy being outdoors hiking, foraging and learning to surf. I also continue my love of basketball and fitness by coaching, training, mentoring and volunteering with many local youth athletes.


Ashton Pankonin
Financial Advisor

Ashton started his financial advisory career in 2009. With a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and a minor in Finance from Minnesota State Mankato, he always knew he wanted to become a financial advisor.

He started the Belle Plaine, MN, office for Edward Jones and quickly recognized the need to operate as an independent advisor and an interest to own his own business. In 2013, he joined Waddell & Reed Financial Advisors in order to achieve those goals. Becoming an independent advisor was key to Ashton’s commitment to serving his clients in their best interests at all times.

In 2017, Ashton joined KMF Advisors of Focus Financial to have more engagement with advisor colleagues and enhanced office support as he continues to expand his business offering comprehensive financial planning and investment management services.

As an independent financial advisor, Ashton works with his clients to help them reach their retirement goals and take the emotion out of investing. He works with individuals, families, and business owners to ensure their financial plans and successions plans are tailored to their own individual needs and objectives.

Within the financial planning process, Ashton reviews important factors to a successful plan, including life insurance needs, rollover IRAs at retirement, and business retirement plans.


Loren Edberg
Financial Advisor

Loren started with Lee Investments Plus in February 2008.    Loren works with almost all areas of the business.  Loren handles our day to day operations most of our marketing and continues his role as a financial advisor meeting with clients and helping them with their goals.  Loren will go above and beyond for our clients and I always like to share the story of the client that wanted to make an IRA contribution on the Tax Day deadline at the end of the day.  Loren jumped into his car and chased the UPS driver in order to get our clients IRA contribution in by the tax deadline.  He will make every effort to make sure you feel important, comfortable and have no inconveniences and will go out of his way to make that happen.  Running four offices with multiple advisor schedules and client schedules is no easy task and yet he still finds time to keep us involved in community events and lend a hand where ever we can.


Randy Kruger
Financial Advisor

My business philosophy is to be the best person I can be.  I set the standards very high for myself.  I am very aware of the trust my clients have shown by allowing me to manage their assets and I accept that trust with the mindset that I will do my very best to help my clients reach their financial goals.

I have been in the financial industry since graduating from college in 1974.  From 1974 to 2003, I worked in several banks, located in North Dakota and Minnesota.  In 1987, while working for a bank in Carrington N.D., I obtained my securities registrations.  I joined INVEST in 2004 to start my new career as a Financial Advisor.  I joined Brad Davis and Investments Plus in 2015 and we are now KMF advisors with Focus Financial.
