Self Managed Super
take control of your own super
We can help you weigh up the pros and cons of running an
SMSF and help you decide whether it’s right for you.
Take control of your super
With a self-managed super fund, you are in charge of your super and where it is invested, plus you manage those investments yourself.
There are many reasons people manage their own super – some to save on fees, some to take control of their risk or even just to invest in certain assets.
But, with control comes accountability. You are accountable for your SMSF.
Benefits of an SMSF
If you define costs as a fee to administer your SMSF, then the cost can certainly vary.
Like any financial investment, the way it is operated effects the costs of the operation.
Generally, where you have maintained good, accurate records of your investments, the cost is comparable to industry funds.
Having specialised in SMSF’s for almost 20 years and seen their success, we prefer to consider costs as “what is the cost of NOT having an SMSF?”
Regardless of the costs, the satisfaction levels of SMSF trustees have historically exceeded that of those in industry funds.
