Bede Taylor

Mortgage Lending Advisor

Bede is a Mortgage Lending 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, Olivia and the team provided an excellent service which allowed us to purchase another property without any hesitations or hiccups with our finance approval.

This is our third time using Bede and his team. As always the service was professional, timely and kept things light-hearted and fun where possible. I will continue using Empower Wealth and Bede's team's services for further purchases.

We had originally set up our loans with another mortgage broker through our previous financial planner, although Bede was not our mortgage broker for the loans we were discussing, he was willing to spend the time with us to conduct a review and always had our best interests in mind. Bede gave us some insightful information that we were able to take back to our previous mortgage broker to assist with negotiations with our bank. With the information that Bede presented we were able to negotiate a reduction in our interest rate of over 0.5% with our existing lender thus eliminating the need for a refinance.This is amazing service for people who didn't even end up being clients of Empower Wealth. However, for future loans, we will definitely be engaging the Empower Wealth Team.

Bede and his team were absolute professionals in every sense of the word. The borrowing process, I have heard can be very stressful. Working with Bede and his team put my mind at ease, knowing I was making the right decision because it was backed by knowledge and expertise.

- Anthony, NSW February 2024

A huge shout out to Bede for his unwavering dedication in guiding us through the intricate lending process. His patience and thorough explanations ensured we understood each step. Bede went above and beyond to secure a pre-approval that aligned perfectly with our needs, all while maintaining a commitment to responsible lending practices. His communication skills were exceptional throughout.Bede's effectiveness is further complemented by his capable team. Max, from the mortgage support team, played a crucial role in finalizing the loan approval, offer and acceptance. Kaine, overseeing settlement matters, ensured a seamless process, leaving no room for concerns. Together, Bede and his mortgage broking team have orchestrated a remarkably smooth journey for us, and we wholeheartedly recommend their services to others.
