Customise your portfolio
Gain more control and flexibility with your SMSF
A self-managed super fund (SMSF) can allow greater control for you and any additional members - typically your spouse or other family members.
You’ll also have more flexibility as you can choose from a range of investment options such as shares, cash accounts, term deposits, direct residential or commercial property, collectables, unlisted assets, and more.
So, you can customise your investment portfolio as it suits your goals, allowing for faster adaptability in changing market conditions, policy rules, and individual circumstances.
Plan Your SMSF Today
While an SMSF can provide you better control and flexibility, you also need to consider the risks in following this investment strategy.
Remember, you will act as the trustee of your own fund so you need to carefully review your responsibilities and make sure that you can uphold them, especially if you will ask other people in setting up your fund.
You also need to consider the cost, insurance cover, investment mix, and more.
A customised SMSF plan can help you create an investment roadmap to check if an SMSF is really right for you.

What Can A Financial Adviser Do For You
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Establishing and maintaining an SMSF is time-consuming. Provided they have the right accreditations, a financial planner can provide advice on whether an SMSF is appropriate for you, how to set up and run your SMSF, what trustee structure to have in place, what investments to hold, and help you understand your legal requirements.
SMSF is a highly regulated area of practice and while there are many sources of general advice, only a licensed financial planner can provide personal advice that is appropriate to your individual circumstances.
The cost in setting up an SMSF will vary depending on the complexity of the fund and may range between $1,500 to $3,000.
This figure may involve ATO application forms, trust deed, investment strategy, trust advice, and related costs for setting up the company structure.
No, you can setup your SMSF even without the help of a financial advisor.
However, smart Australians partner with licensed experts to make the experience faster and worthwhile.
Remember that SMSF's are regulated by the ATO and carry strict compliance obligations. The correct establishment and maintenance of the SMSF is important to avoid significant penalties for non-compliance.
