Ben Thompson

Qualified Property Investment Advisor

Ben is a Qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA) at Empower Wealth. He has a background in Residential Property Sales, Leasing, Management and Development and also holds his Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate).

Property has been a passion of Ben’s for as long as he can remember. From 12 years old he was fixated on the idea of getting into Real Estate and upon leaving high school, started that journey in the Bayside suburbs of Melbourne. Ben had a 10 year career in Real Estate Sales, Auctioneering and management, but found that he was far more interested in helping people talk about their ‘big picture’ rather than helping with their individual buying / selling transaction.

After listening to The Property Couch podcast, Ben took the opportunity to apply for a role at Empower Wealth because their values and ethics are aligned to his and because this is where he can combine his love for property with a genuine desire to help people reach their financial goals.

During his spare time, you’ll find Ben spending time with his partner and their dog, dining at a café or restaurant, playing basketball, going to the gym, and watching the saints.



Ben was extremely professional, informative and patient throughout the whole process. Everything was outlined clearly and dealt with in the time frames promised. My husband and I are busy working parents and we found all the instructions clear and easy to follow. From the offset, Ben was engaged and really understood our situation and what we were looking to form our strategy. He gave us clear and valuable advice and also used the money management principles he was advising himself. It was also clear Ben enjoyed the process and showing us the outcomes of the strategy he created for us which made it a really positive and trusting experience. We have found everyone at Empower Wealth highly informed and extremely personable, creating a relationship of trust from an early stage. We would definitely recommend Ben to anyone looking for a wealth planning strategy.

Working a largely commission based income and with our first child on the way my partner and I were apprehensive about what our financial future had in store, and had no idea how to plan for the unknown. Ben Thompson’s knowledge and easygoing nature calmed our nervous energy and made us much more confident in knowing we were not just going to be okay moving forward, but could truly thrive. Under Ben’s guidance we designed a realistic and achievable plan that allows us to still enjoy the things we love and create a retirement plan where we are not reliant on pensions or government schemes. Ben truly exceeded our expectations, always prompt and professional, he provided many money saving tips, worked around our schedules with late evening appointments and is just a genuine nice guy who wants nothing but the best for his clients.Thank you Ben! Best, Damian and Tahlea

The whole process was seamless. Ben was very patient and worked with us to stress test our assumptions and find the optimal scenario. We’ve now got a clear strategy that will give us a level of financial independence beyond what we considered possible.

Ben T from the property planning team was fantastic at every interaction. My wife and I both really enjoyed the advice, feedback and honest cautions around different strategies, trade-offs and risk appetite in our plan development. Ben helped us understand our options and modeled multiple scenarios for us to assist our investment journey. Ben also linked in with the mortgage brokering and buyers agents teams to create a cohesive experience for us as additional information evolved through the plan development.
