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.

Having been a listener of the podcast and curious as to whether the team could help me, I decided to book a consultation. Paul was brilliant in taking us through current forecasted projections and where we could be if we made changes now. We are quite happy with the projected outcome and are working towards it now. this is a journey and not a quick fix.

Investing in property is a huge financial commitment and I believe it is important to get excellent advice from a good qualified property investment advisor. Overall I am very satisfied with the property portfolio plan and the process that I went through with Paul in order to complete the plan. It was a pleasure dealing with Paul. He was honest and explained everything very clearly. The plan is a great way to let you know where you stand and what you need to do in order to achieve property investing success. I feel the team at empower wealth are really knowledgeable about property investing. I am really glad I chose Empower Wealth. I would not hesitate to recommend Empower Wealth to family and friends.

Empower Wealth and our planner Paul Thompson are hard to fault. He understood the questions we wanted answered delivered in any easy to understand manner. Also appreciated no hard up sell for any other parts of the business. Very impressed overall and would highly recommend. Thanks.

The team at Empower is professional, patient and knowledgeable! Made it so easy to develop a plan that will meet our personal goals and they helped my partner feel a LOT more comfortable with investing!

Paul was extremely knowledgeable and really incorporated all of our circumstances and individual plans into the overall property strategy. I had wondered if we could achieve our goals and retire when we wanted to, so we were super delighted to see that was possible. I just feel disappointed that I didn't contact you guys sooner as we tried to do too much of it ourselves in the past!
