Simon Gillespie

Finance Advisor

Simon is a Finance Advisor at Empower Wealth with more than twelve years combined experience in Financial Planning and Mortgage Broking. Simon holds a Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning), Certificate IV in Financial Services (Finance/Mortgage Broking) and a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management.

With a background in manufacturing, Simon chose a new career in finance after returning from living abroad for two years. Initially starting his career as a Financial Planner, Simon found an interest in lending structures, strategy and processes early on in his career. Since then he has found a real joy in helping friends and clients buy their homes while educating them about the benefits of correct lending structures and how to use their money in smarter ways. Simon believes he has found himself in the unique position to help people realise their dreams and finds this work very fulfilling.

Simon’s role within the business is to analyse a client’s financial situation and put a plan in place to help them achieve their goals through purchasing and investing in property. He believes that in his position, clear communication is just as important as knowledge and is continually seeking to improve his skills as a Finance Advisor.

Simon’s spare time is primarily spent with his young family, but he loves to take any opportunity to jump on his mountain bike and race downhill. Simon is working on building his own property portfolio using the skills and knowledge that are available within the Empower Wealth team of specialists with the plans to replicate what he teaches his own clients to do in building passive income so he can spend more time working on his golf handicap.

As a first time property investor the aspect that I understood the least was the finance side of things. Simon and William did an amazing job answering my questions and being able to explain things in a way that I understood. They made the process extremely smooth for me. I'll be using Empower Wealth for my next property that's for sure.

We used the broking team after using the financial planning team. This made the process very simple and Simon and his team were very informative for what could have been a confusing process.

Simon and his team were awesome! They took all the stress and worry out of everything. Couldn't have asked for a smoother process.

As a first-time property investors, it was great to have Empower Wealth to create a projection plan for us to give us a clear picture of what we needed to do to retire comfortably. It's been about 3 years since we first reached out to Empower Wealth and they have helped us set up the correct mortgages for our properties to give us the best structure based on our individual situation and our plan. We're about to purchase our third property without cross-collateralisation, so that we have complete control, NOT the banks! We highly recommend Empower Wealth. They have an excellent conservative approach. They a great process and communication throughout!!

Simon and the team were outstanding across the board. They made buying our first home super easy and could not recommend their services to others more. We are actually excited to link forces again when we look at taking our next step in the property investment world.
