Kevin Bourke CFP®, ChFC®Wealth Manager

Inheritance, divorce, retirement or the sale of a business along with so many of life’s experiences each presents its own unique challenge. These challenges call for a financial advisor who listens carefully to your specific concerns and can handcraft a customized strategy. Kevin strives to be that advisor for those with two million dollars or more in investable assets.

As the founder of Bourke Wealth Management and author of the book Make Your Money Last a Lifetime®, Kevin has worked extensively in the field of financial management since 1987. His designations include CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional and Chartered Financial Consultant. He was also the fourth advisor ever certified in Digital Assets by the New York Institute of Finance partnered with the Digital Assets Council of Financial Professionals (DACFP).

As a way to give back to the community, he taught the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Board of Standards curriculum at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) and has had the pleasure of being a member of the Santa Barbara Estate Planning Council for several years.

Acting upon a strong belief of supporting philanthropy, Kevin has served on several non-profit boards, including the Board of Trustees for Child Abuse Listening Mediation (CALM) and the board of Alpha Resource Center, a non-profit providing support for those with developmental disabilities.

Over the years Kevin has enjoyed being a contributor to various media outlets including ABC News/KEYT. For several years he wrote the financial column for the Santa Barbara Independent.

Santa Barbara California provides many beautiful vistas. Kevin makes the most of living there by walking about five miles per day on the beach, through the mountains or just in the neighborhood.
