Do It Yourself
If you’re not happy with your super fund’s performance or fees, maybe it’s time to consider another fund or simply doing it yourself.
Some people prefer control and flexibility over their super, even if it requires more time and effort. That’s why Self Managed Super Funds (SMSFs) are the fastest growing type of superannuation in Australia.
Providing you have enough super, a SMSF can give you the opportunity to invest in property, shares or collectibles. But you need to be careful that you understand the responsibilities involved.
That’s where our licensed financial advisors can help you. First, we can review whether your current super fund balance is sufficient to start an SMSF and highlight some important areas for you to consider. Then we can discuss potential investment strategies within your SMSF to achieve your financial goals. Finally, we coordinate the whole process of setting up your bare trust, corporate trustee and ABN so you can start investing.

Max and Carly Do It Themselves
One of our clients (let’s call them Max and Carly) were not happy with the performance of their super, especially the limited investment options available.
Having more flexibility and control over what they invested in, and when they invested, was really important. After reviewing the pros and cons and the responsibilities of their own self managed super fund, Max and Carly decided they were ready. Within weeks, they were researching different investment options and found a managed fund ideally suited to their investment criteria.
Self managed super funds can be very rewarding providing you’re ready to take on the responsibility for managing your investments. We can make the process easier for you by ensuring your fund is properly set up. Talk to us.
