Self Managed Super Funds - Is a Self-Managed Super fund appropriate for you?
In recent times, Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSF) have become very popular and, for many investors, they represent an excellent vehicle to manage their retirement assets.
It is my belief that for many Australian’s who have an SMSF, it is not the most appropriate structure. Truth be known, often the person recommending the fund benefits greatly. As a financial planner, a SMSF client is gold as they are generally high revenue clients. The same applies for accountants and those involved with property investment, we are all incentivised to recommend an SMSF. Is this best for the client?
