Thinking about Self-Managed Super?

The difference between an SMSF and other types of funds is that the members of an SMSF are usually also the trustees. This means the members of the SMSF run it for their benefit and are responsible for complying with the super and tax laws

If you set up a self-managed super fund (SMSF), you’re in charge – you make the investment decisions for the fund and you’re held responsible for complying with the super and tax laws. It’s a major financial decision and you need to have the time and skills to do it. There may be better options for your super savings.

An SMSF must be run for the sole purpose of providing retirement benefits for the members or their dependents. Don’t set up an SMSF to try to get early access to your super, or to buy a holiday home or artworks to decorate your house. These things are illegal.

It’s best to see a qualified, licensed professional to help you decide. That’s where we can help!

Self Managed Investor Services (SMIS)

What is Self-Directed Investing (SDI’s)?
Self-directed investing is the activity of individual investors trading stocks, property, bonds, funds, and other securities on their own behalf. SDI’s typically use discount brokers, collect rents, manage their own properties and online trading, they don’t rely on other people choosing what and when to buy and sell.

These DIY investors display several common behaviours:
1.    The desire to craft their own investment plans based on their interests, capacity for risk, and long-term goals
2.    The confidence to make their own trades, regardless of the sentiment of brokers, advisors, or the broad market
3.    The willingness to perform their own research and the ability to act on that information
4.    Willing to only get help in specific supported areas so as to maintain maximum control and minimise costs.

Rather than paying a typical financial manager 1% of your entire portfolio’s value every year plus commissions and fees to make a couple of trades for you, you decide what to invest in and why.

Self Directed Investors still require a great deal of assistance so they can concentrate on what they really want to do best- Making Investment Decisions! That’s where SMIS can help.
