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's level of service was sensational. Have recommended his and the company's services to multiple friends.

Bede and his team assisted us with refinancing a loan we had against a property held in a SMSF. We were kept well informed each step of the way and any questions or concerns we had were promptly answered. We would have no hesitation using their services again.

Bede was instrumental to us securing our forever home. We purchased in Sydney in January 2021 with stiff competition after 1 15 minute inspection and 70 groups through the open. The relationship we had built with Bede through our search gave us confidence to act decisively on the purchase on short notice, without formal approvals in place. William and the settlements team were professional and gave us confidence that all would go through... and it did. Thanks a lot to the whole empower team for your support.

Bede and his team were extremely helpful from our first discussion, ultimately assisting us in securing our mortgage quickly and smoothly, with no bumps along the journey. As we are looking to purchase an investment property that would become a PPOR within the next 24 months, it was critical that we had someone experienced in getting the right loan to enable us to secure this property, but also to set us up for future property purchases. Bede and his team were all over it and were able to progress our plans despite the high LVR requirements. The Empower Wealth team, and Bede in particular, were available at all times to discuss any concerns or changes we may have had and allowed a smooth settlement of our investment property.

- Mark Robinson, NSW March 2021

I felt very overwhelmed initially by the process. Bede was excellent in helping me understand and feel confident. Bede and his team were always accessible to answer any queries. The whole team is friendly and knowledgeable.
