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.

The Empower Wealth team have done an amazing job to help us develop a Property Portfolio Plan, put finance together to execute the plan, and with incredible experience, strategy and skill identify and purchase an amazing property. The property purchased is our dream home and we could not be more happy and grateful. Thank you Paul, Dean and our exceptional Agent, Christa

Paul was helpful in starting from the beginning and taking note of our goals and plans for the near, and far future. He patiently talked through different possibilities and models for our investments. The process was very thorough and complex, but Paul made sure he started with the basics for us. We enjoyed seeing the plan modelled out and compared with ‘no action’ were surprised at how little we needed to do in the near future to achieve what we wanted.

I came to Empower feeling anxious about financial decisions I had made. I feel like financially my wife and I are already in a better way. Between the Money SMARTS system and a long term plan we feel transformed.
