Special Address: Senator the Hon Jane Hume

February 2021

The SMSF Association were honoured to be joined by Senator the Hon Jane Hume, Minister for Superannuation, Financial Services, and the Digital Economy earlier this month at their virtual National Conference, the premier event for SMSF professionals and the SMSF sector. In her Special Address to over 1100 delegates, the Minister provided a glowing endorsement of SMSF trustees and outlined the Government’s objectives and plans for the sector for 2021 and beyond. 

“But first, I want to recognise and acknowledge the Self Managed Super Fund Association’s work –  particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic – in representing an integral part of the Superannuation ecosystem.”

“As at September last year, there are more than 591,000 SMSFs, accounting for $728 billion…the driving force behind these numbers is Australians desire to be masters of their own destiny, to control their personal retirement incomes. And that’s something we as a government wholeheartedly endorse; we want more people to take an active interest in their personal finances and retirement savings.”
