Following the Global Financial Crisis, poor superannuation returns caused superannuation investment to become misunderstood and therefore unpopular. However, when utilised properly, the superannuation structure can actually be a tax effective long-term investment vehicle.

 

Navigating the increasingly complex government legislation changes around superannuation is difficult. Ben* recently came to us from another adviser, who had set him up on a Self Managed Superannuation Fund. Unfortunately, he wasn't told about his responsibilities as an SMSF trustee. Ben's retirement needs were simple and, after weighing up the pros and cons of each of the superannuation options (including industry and retail superannuation funds), we helped him to wind up his SMSF and roll it into a more suitable retail fund. Doing so saved Ben considerable fees as well as the hassle of all of the ongoing trustee responsibilities.

Do you know what the superannuation contribution caps are and how to ensure that you don’t breach them? Is a Self Managed Super Fund suitable for you? Why is SMSF so popular among investors? We can answer these questions (and more) and help you learn the tips and traps of investing in superannuation so that you too can make it work effectively for you.
