“is the Chair of Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) and Founding Director ofEmpower Wealth. A qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA), he holds a Real Estate Agency License (VIC, NSW and QLD), a Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management, Diploma of Business and has become one of Australia’s leading experts in property investing for wealth creation.

Ben founded Empower Wealth in late 2007 after a successful career in Resort Tourism Sales and Marketing.

Passionate about personal wealth creation, yet frustrated by the lack of independent property advice and the quality and balance of information in the marketplace, Ben turned his attention to building a truly specialist advisory practice. Empower Wealth combines all the key areas of wealth creation professions including; Property Investing, Finance, Money and Wealth Planning, Risk Management, Superannuation, Shares, Managed Funds and Estate Planning.

Hand picking the very best and most qualified specialists, Empower Wealth has become one of Melbourne’s leading wealth advisory consultancies with a major point difference – everything is under one roof.

Ben’s ultimate goal for the business has always been very simple – provide clients and potential property investors with access to specialist advice and tools which will help them achieve superior investment returns and ultimately total financial independence.

His philosophy is that with a little effort, a commitment to building knowledge and a support network of qualified professionals, anyone can vastly improve their wealth outcomes, almost irrespective of what income they currently earn. This approach, coupled with experience building his own multimillion dollar portfolio, has seen Ben personally help hundreds of individuals and households invest into millions of dollars worth of residential property for either owner occupied or investment purposes.

In 2012, Ben was appointed to the Chair of Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA). PIPA is a not for profit association whose mandate is to increase the professionalism of those in the industry and to champion consumer protection from unscrupulous operators. PIPA is currently lobbying government to have the property investment industry regulated by ASIC. As the Chair of PIPA, Ben is at the forefront of the industry and is a contributor of content to the newly revised QPIA (Qualified Property Investment Adviser) certificate level course offered by PIPA.

20 years experience in property investing, finance and wealth creation, together with a comprehensive understanding of industry regulations, issues and trends, has positioned Ben as a genuine expert in property finance and money management. In 2014, he won the Best Property Investment Advisor of the Year Award by Your Investment Property Magazine.

Ben is a regular media contributor and keynote speaker and is regularly featured in the Melbourne Home Buyers and Property Investor Shows, CPA Public Practice Conference and more. He also appears as a panelist and commentator on Sky Business News ‘Your Money, Your Call’, ABC News and Look at Property.

Ben also writes for Money Magazine, Smart Property Investor and Your Investment Property Magazine.
