As financial planners, we integrate holistically the financial particulars for our clients in the development and management of their investments including when, and as appropriate, long-term financial projections, pre-authorized collaboration with other client service professionals in the area of estate and tax planning strategies, insurance and risk management assessments.

Client Service Team

  • Mark Harbour, CFA, CIMA
    In late 2007, Mark and his wife Bernadette joined to form a client-serving partnership as financial advisors at Smith Barney which eventually became Morgan Stanley.  They have blended their mutual professional experiences to help clients and their families align their wealth with who they are. Mark graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and spent three years as an officer in the US Navy. Mark earned his MBA from the University of Chicago, Graduate School of Business in 1976.He began his professional career as a tax practitioner-- in the Chicago office of what is now KPMG.  He became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) serving both individual and business clients as part of the insurance and international tax teams.  Later, to broaden his experience, Mark spent two years with the Mead Corporation in Chicago, and Atlanta, Georgia.   After several years in Oklahoma with dual roles as a tax practitioner and manager of a family oil business, Mark joined Asset Management Group (Now AMG National Trust Bank) in Denver, Colorado.  He served high net worth (Fortune 500 executives) and their families.  He eventually managed the Midwest office of that firm in Chicago.Mark joined Ernst & Young in Chicago, focusing on financial planning and advisory services.  During his years with E&Y, Mark earned his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA®) designations and helped lead the Investment Advisory Practice that served the needs of approximately 120 registered investment advisors with E&Y nationally. Mark was Western Regional Director of Wealth Advisory Services for Northern Trust Bank serving the needs of clients of the 13 western regional offices for that firm.

  • Bernadette Harbour
    Bernadette was born and raised in Queens, NY.  She joined Ernst & Young as a full time employee while earning her B.S. degree from NYU’s Stern School of Business.Earning her degree spurred Bernadette to increase her focus with executives in the financial and tax areas at Ernst & Young.  As part of the Financial Planning practice, she achieved the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation.  Throughout her 20 years at E&Y (mostly in the corporate office in NY), Bernadette and her team developed and supported several components of the financial planning practice around the country.  In addition to working with executives, Bernadette and her team developed a unique program to educate large employee groups about the value of their company benefits.  Her other activity was to support financial advisors employed by major brokerage firms.  Bernadette and her team provided financial planning software and supporting services to help them address the needs of their clients.These three major areas of the financial planning practice (complex decisions, education and advisor support) provided Bernadette an in-depth and unusually wide breadth of professional experience.  Her passion—then and now--was getting to know so many people and being able to help them.  Along with a few others, she assisted developing the E&Y Personal Financial Planning Guide.  As the major accounting firms were moving away from the investment advisory business, Bernadette moved to Los Angeles and started her own business about 20 years ago.  She has found more “family” and friends in the clients with whom she has had the good fortune to meet.  She helps clients address a wide range of concerns, financial and otherwise.  In looking for ways to continue growing her practice, Bernadette was delighted to add a trusted advisor in partnering with her husband, Mark.  Their merged practices are aimed at helping clients align their wealth with who they are.
