Financial PlannersNewsSuperannuation FundIs Self Managed Superannuation Fund Right for You

A self managed superannuation fund (SMSF) is great for some people, but inappropriate for others. Our financial advisors have over 40 years combined experience in the Perth area. One of the things we have learned at Approved Financial Planners is that no person’s financial situation is the same as another’s. Consequently, you will need an individual consult before you know whether an SMSF is right for you.

Advantages of SMSF

An SMSF allows you to exercise greater control over your financial future. You decide where your investment money goes. You are free to choose an aggressive strategy if you want, dependent on how averse or open you are to risk.

Since an SMSF is usually obtained by paying fixed fees while industry and retail super funds receive a percentage of the funds you invest, those who have more money in their funds may pay a lower percentage for administration costs.

An SMSF provides you with greater levels of transparency, control and flexibility. Also, changes in laws governing SMSFs now allow them to borrow money. This allows you to invest in assets such as rental properties and other, more diverse assets.

What We Do

At Approved Financial Planners, we can educate you fully on SMSFs and help you determine whether an SMSF is right for you. If so, we can proceed to recommending one or more of our preferred administrators to work with you. Then, we help you set up your SMSF, taking care of such details as applying for the trust deed and the other documentation that is required.

We will help you determine a strategy. If you want to apply for loans such as residential, commercial or margin loans, we can help with that, too. We monitor your investments closely and communicate with you, your lawyers and accountants to help ensure your future.
