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.

We would highly recommend getting in touch with Empower Wealth to anyone thinking about their future financial situation. Paul Thompson was incredibly helpful and insightful throughout the whole process and has helped us develop a very detailed Plan that gives us the confidence to make the big financial decisions today, because we now know what the impact will be down the track.

Paul has been fantastic in helping me kick start my property journey. I feel informed, confident and at ease about my future decisions because I witnessed the detail and care taken in preparing my Property Portfolio Plan. I know where the figures come from, how to maximise my cash flow management and where I'm heading next - all because it was explained to me in thoroughly. I was never made to feel like any question was too big or small and felt well supported throughout the whole process. I'm so glad that I engaged Empower Wealth's expertise, money well spent!

Paul has been excellent and understanding of our situation, he was quick to understand and look for the best option for us. He has made things clear for us in how we can move forward to being in a better financial position. We look forward to catching up with Paul again!

Paul has made me see that I can achieve financial freedom without having to change my lifestyle, and by keeping myself on track with Money SMARTS, it's going to be relatively easy to get there. I love the personalisation of the plan; it's specific to us and our circumstances and gives us a benchmark to work to.
