Paul Thompson

Qualified Property Investment Advisor

Paul Thompson is one of our Qualified Property Investment Advisors here at Empower Wealth. He has a background in residential/commercial construction, Investment Banking, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance.


Paul was born and raised in Victoria and had a strong passion for real estate at a young age. He pursued a building apprenticeship just out of high school and whilst getting some invaluable experience in real estate, he took his skills and youthful desire to travel by embarking on a journey across the UK and New Zealand and continued to perform construction work in both the residential and commercial arenas. During his travels, Paul met and married his wife, Stephanie, and decided to head to the US where she was born. Once in the US, Paul pursued his bachelor’s degree and a career in Investment Banking. He secured a job at a large international Investment Bank in New York. Rising through the ranks and taking on management and front office roles, Paul was the Prime Broker for his clients and Assistant VP at Barclays Bank. During this time in the investment banking space, Paul was able to advise his business clients in all manners of business investments as well as some family office advice for his clients. Paul realised he found more enjoyment in connecting personally with his clients and working on building their personal wealth positions.

Paul, Stephanie and their two children decided to make the move from the US back to Paul’s home town of Melbourne. During this move, Paul seized the opportunity to change his career path from Investment Banking and the large corporate settings to a more unique and tailored position at Empower Wealth. With his role as a Qualified Property Investment Advisor, Paul now has a greater sense of fulfilment by being able to meet with individuals and families in order to help them achieve their financial goals and aspirations through property investment.

During his spare time Paul loves spending time with his family and running around with his two children. Also, he enjoys playing his guitar, reading and keeping active by running, cycling and participating in local triathlons. He looks forward to watching his children grow and like the clients he’s helping, building a property portfolio of his own to provide financial security for his family.

Paul was great at listening to my concerns and always kept things very professional. very polite and great at explaining things in a simple manner.

Thank you for your services. I would have loved to have received this service and advise 20 years ago but only found out about this service recently. Investing large amounts of money can be daunting so it helps to have expert knowledge to help guide the decision process. Staff have been friendly as well as professional/knowledgable and there is great linkage and communication between services within empower so the professionals are aware of your background information.

What an amazing team. Paul the financial advisor helped us see what was possible for our future and how we could make it happen. Bede and Jake our mortgage brokers found us great deals and helped us with the enormous amount of paperwork. And Aleksandra the buyers agent managed to score a a great property in a very tough market on the first attempt . She was an absolute joy to work with and gave us the confidence to make a decision that we would have struggled to make. Highly recommend all of their services.

Paul and Thomas have understood our requirements and future planning needs from the onset. The tailored approach and solution they have provided, offering bespoke customer service bar none. I can not stress how helpful they have been through our journey.
