Katie Bessell-Truscott

Loan Processor & Mortgage Support Officer

Katie is a Loan Processor & Mortgage Support Officer at Empower Wealth and has an RG146 Compliance accreditation as well as undertaking a Certificate IV in business management and leadership.

Originally from Adelaide, Katie has started her career in the finance industry working for a major bank. Her first role as a teller taught her the fundamentals of money management and as she moved to a Personal banker role, she helped clients achieve their goals through personal loans along with creating financial goals that suits their needs. Later on, she was promoted to a home loan specialist and that’s where she fulfilled her real passion. This role was the primary reason she got into banking as she believes that property is a great tool when it comes to wealth creation and she is keen to help clients sharpen their loan structure and strategy to maximise their investment opportunities and achieve passive income.

Her passion to help clients achieve their financial goals is what brought her to Empower Wealth. She was following The Property Couch podcast for their property content when she heard of the role and found out that Empower Wealth’s value to provide knowledge and support to their clients as well as to the staff was very much aligned with hers. She applied for the role and the rest is history.

Outside of work, Katie loves to travel, explore Melbourne and of course, spend time with her Cavoodle called Chino as he resembles a cappuccino. She’s also a Crows supporter and enjoys playing tennis and netball. But since moving to Melbourne in 2019, she has set a few personal goals to achieve this year which includes salsa dancing, strengthening her cooking skills and improving her public speaking.



Sarah, Katie and Mitch are absolute assets to Empower Wealth. They have great communication skills and always had the time to go through my questions throughout the process. Excellent service.
