Self Managed Superannuation Fund
Depending on your situation, SMSFs allow you to take control of your super and access a greater variety of direct investment options not normally available through a public offer super fund.
Investment properties, structured investment products as well as traditional listed shares and managed funds can be accommodated within an SMSF. These assets can be used as a deposit for a purchase of additional assets within the fund and can result in potential tax benefits.
It is important to note that the superannuation industry is both complex and ever-expanding, and no area is more so than SMSFs. Trustees are constantly challenged in keeping up to date with the numerous changes in legislation and tax rulings. A critical element of a SMSF is the obligation to have a well documented investment strategy. As an investors you may not be accessing the full potential of your SMSF. In such a highly specialised area you need a specialist.
