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.

Excellent service from start to settlement with fantastic communication and updates at every stage. The team was always proactive in keeping us in the loop and ensuring everything moved along as efficiently as possible. Was a pleasure to work with Simon, Jade and May and will do so again with no hesitation in the future.

Simon, May and Jade were excellent in refinancing all of my loans, which took nearly a year to settle. There was a hiccup when I tried to refinance my IP loan last year and could not settle due to complication with the bank. With Simon's expertise, he was able to re-structure my home loan and IP loans correctly and refinance to another lender in the current strict lending environment. Simon is now helping me to secure a pre-approval for my next IP. Thanks Simon, May and Jade.

Both Damien and Simon have been exceptional in our dealings. They have been patient, answered questions whenever needed and approached us in a courteous and respectful manner.

I  would like to say a huge Thanks to Simon and his team for assisting us in achieving our finance and structuring our loans to enable us to continue on our investment journey. Having the expertise to get the structure correct was my biggest concern, and Team Simon has achieved our goal. I would not hesitate to recommend this Mortgage Broking team to everyone and we feel fortunate to have them on our side. Thanks Simon, May & Jade.

Simon Gillespie's technical knowledge is exceptional, and his eagerness to assist with my needs as a client was second to none (Simon assisted throughout the whole process, also providing advice during the negotiations stage based on his experience as a property investor).
