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.

My wife and I are looking forward to implementing the plan that Paul has created for us.

As a newbie to the market and Australia, it was really beneficial for me to engage with Empower Wealth team and get the proper guiding and advice that helped me in planning my next steps in life and visualise my end goal. Thanks for the team who works as one from developing the books, videos, podcast, plans, loans & even the help on the ground to secure the right property.

We are extremely happy with the level of service we have received from Empower Wealth thus far. Our proposed Investment Strategy meets our desired outcome and we can’t wait to make our first purchase with the guidance of our Buyers Agent. We would have no hesitation recommending their services onto family and friends. p.s. love the property podcasts :)

We found the process of creating a Property Portfolio Plan for our future in retirement both liberating and empowering. We found all of Empower Wealth staff to be personable and professional and were always made to feel welcome at their head office. We appreciate that Empower Wealth use conservative estimations to ensure realistic targets are achieved. All of the Empower Wealth professionals took time to discuss information and assisted in any clarification we asked for. We look forward to working with Empower Wealth now and we’ll into the future in the execution of our Property Portfolio Plan. We have and will continue to recommend Empower Wealth to friends and associates considering property investment or pension planning.

This is our second time with Paul and it is good to have an adviser who knows our individual circumstances and can talk us through the details.
