Our vision is to enable Australians to take greater control of their financial future through a sustainable Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) community. We believe that every Australian has the right to a good quality of life in retirement and the right to control their own destiny.
Further to this, we believe that better outcomes arise when professional advisors and trustees are armed with the latest information, especially in the growing and sometimes complex world of self managed super funds. This research report co-presented by Rice Warner and the SMSF Association, proudly supported by SuperConcepts, aims to educate, inform and assist existing and potential SMSF investors decide if an SMSF is a suitable and effective retirement savings vehicle for them.
This report provides valuable insights to guide potential SMSF advice and can be used as a key reference point for all involved in the decision-making process. It is crucial SMSF investors have up to date knowledge and adequate education to be engaged and legally responsible to control their Self Managed Super Fund, ideally in partnership with an independently accredited SMSF Specialist Advisor. Over 1 million Australians have already made this important choice and our aim is to help those who are considering an SMSF for their retirement, to make informed and appropriate choices.
