Self-Managed Superannuation Funds

Self-Managed Superannuation Funds

Your own personal super fund

If you want greater control over how your money is invested, you may be thinking of setting up and managing your own self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF).

A self-managed super fund can be a useful tool to assist in tax planning or the creation of wealth. It is an ideal option for DIY investors who prefer to make their own investment choices for their retirement, rather than leaving the management of their superannuation in the hands of others. In the right circumstances, an SMSF can offer greater tax benefits and more investment flexibility.

With more freedom comes more responsibility

When you set up an SMSF, you’re the one in charge. You choose the investment strategy, and you enjoy the rewards. But, you’re also responsible for complying with the tax and superannuation laws. The rules are complex and they change all the time. 

It’s a major financial decision, so you need qualified, specialist advice. Our SMSF advisors, based right here in Perth, can help you understand your options and choose the best path forward.

What we do

Our SMSF advisors can provide self-managed super fund advice at every stage, from SMSF set up, accumulation, and pension, and finally to the wind up of the fund.

We begin with an initial consultation to evaluate benefits versus risks, and answer the questions you’ve been waiting too long to ask. Then, we’ll help you prepare and set up your SMSF and put the right trustee model in place. We assist you to obtain the trust deed and legal documents, and rollover your other super funds into your SMSF.

Next, we'll set you up with a cloud-based dashboard to monitor your portfolio, and help you with your annual reporting requirements. Our SMSF reporting will show you key information such as your investment balance, investment return, and capital growth, so you’re always armed with the right information to complement our specialist advice.
