Victor Dao

Senior Financial Planner

Victor is a Financial Planner at Empower Wealth who has more than 10 years’ experience in the financial planning industry. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce from the Australian National University majoring in Accounting & Finance, a Diploma & Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning, and is a Certified Financial Planner ® with the Financial Planning Association (FPA).

Originally born in Perth WA, Victor moved with his family to Sydney NSW when he was just 10 years old. After finishing high school, he decided to move to Canberra to study at the Australian National University. It was during this period that he commenced part-time employment with a large and well-known financial planning firm.

From then on, upon graduating from university, he has worked at some of the largest and most recognisable wealth management, accounting and superannuation firms in Australia which has given him a unique perspective and skillset which he brings to Empower Wealth.

He is a strong believer in the value of personal financial advice and the positive impact it can have on a person’s future. Whether it be long term wealth creation and retirement planning or defending one’s family against the unforeseen, Victor has specialist knowledge and experience in these areas and enjoys unpacking these complex and unfamiliar concepts to clients so they can make a fully informed decision.

Victor believes that his role as a financial planner is to inform, educate and help clients make the most optimal choice given their own circumstances. As with most things in life, there are often multiple options a person can choose; his role is to help you understand the benefits and consequences of the options as they relate to you.

In his spare time, Victor enjoys going to the gym, catching up with friends and family over dinner and watching sports. He is also an amateur hobby mechanic who enjoys learning to fix cars. He wishes he had more time to improve his skills in this area.

Victor, Sam, and the rest of the team has been a great help to me. They were very patient with me, and thoroughly explained things to me. They have also been very accommodating with my schedule. I really appreciate how they were very flexible and adapted to what I needed.

Victor was an excellent planner who listened to us and empowered us by providing advice in an easy-to-explain format.

The team at Empower Wealth have been an amazing help getting us in a better financial position in the long term. They have a world of knowledge in their field and I can see they take their time looking at every detail of their client's positions and make sure they provide the best advice possible to reach their client's goals. Would highly recommend the team at Empower Wealth and look forward to continue using their services in future.

- James Gifford, NSW November 2023

We really enjoyed the services provided by Victor, Sarah and Sam. We believe that it is an integral part of having a great financial adviser, particularly the advice on superannuation and insurance. Insurance is really not a sexy topic that gets enough attention and can really be an intimidating process to go through, however, we are thankful that we have the team assisting us with this process, and gave the peace of mind to sleep well at night. Thanks for your service and help.
