Bede Taylor

Finance Advisor

Bede is a Finance Advisor at Empower Wealth with more than fifteen years’ experience in Mortgage Broking. Bede holds a Certificate IV in Financial Services (Finance/Mortgage Broking) and a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management.

With a background in banking and financial services, Bede has received training and experience with respected institutions including Macquarie Bank and NAB, working closely with financial planning networks to provide complimentary mortgage broking services tailored to individual client circumstances. Bede has built strong relationships from this work and is proud of the long term client associations he enjoys as a result.

Prior to Empower Wealth, Bede was instrumental in the establishment and development of a boutique loan brokerage, where he was the Responsible Manager for an Australian Credit Licence and managed a team of seven loan writers and support staff. Bede also has experience as a registered property stock and business agent and has managed property sales teams.
But Bede’s real passion is in the numbers and having a direct connection with his clients. According to him, he’s always been proud when implementing all the unglamorous hard work that’s required behind the scenes to make the dream happen for his clients. The financial education piece is also a big drive for Bede. He loves presenting the numbers and articulating difficult concepts in such a way that it’s easy for the client to understand and educates them along the way. When asked about his greatest satisfaction in the role, he mentioned that it’s when he meets a client and they’re just completely uninterested or head buried in the sand about the numbers, and at the end of the meeting they’re really excited and really grateful that he’s been able to explain things in such a way that they actually get it!

Bede realised that his values are aligned with Empower Wealth’s so when the opportunity to bring innovative loan writing skills and property experience presented itself, it is a welcome progression.

Bede grew up with a family of home renovators and has enjoyed success developing his own property investment portfolio over the years. Having a keen interest in art and architecture, Bede particularly enjoys the satisfaction of refurbishing homes with modern conveniences, whilst retaining their own period charm, whether it’s a federation home from the turn of the century or 1950’s post war modern! Being part of a large close knit family has also brought great pride and joy.

 

 

 

Bede is the most informed broker I have had the experience of working with. He was extremely calm and supportive during a very tumultuous time when in the midst of COVID financial institutions were changing rates and policies daily! He was very responsive, I always felt supported and that he always had my best interests at heart. I’d highly recommend Bede to anyone needing a mortgage broker.

Bede and his team were always very accommodating with information and I always felt that Bede was understanding of our situation. Bede was always available and would call himself at anytime there was progress or offering an update.

We were lucky enough to have Bede and his team manage our Mortgage Broking service. The various lending structures and process was clearly explained to us and we were matched with a product that met our needs. The communication with the team was excellent. We found them all to be friendly and courteous and and we were kept informed up to the minute throughout the whole application and approval process. We will definitely contact Empower Wealth for the next property and would highly recommend Team Bede!

We recently engaged Empower Wealth to provide an end-to-end package from creating a Property Portfolio Plan to the Mortgage Broking and Buyers Advocacy services. We were very impressed by the level of knowledge and sound advice provided along with the passion, commitment and efficiency of the entire team. As first-time investors we were somewhat daunted by taking the plunge but thanks to the professional guidance of the Empower Wealth team, found the whole process to be much simpler than expected with a great outcome. After a short search, we ended up purchasing in Melbourne and were able to lease the property only one week after settlement. It has been a very exciting journey. Thank you Empower Wealth for illuminating the pathway into property investment.
