Is a Self Managed Superannuation Fund right for you?

People who set up and manage their own personal superannuation fund are typically motivated by the desire to take charge of their retirement funding outcomes.

A Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) offers greater flexibility and control compared to public offer funds. By establishing your own SMSF, you can also take advantage of the tax-effective superannuation environment. For these reasons, more and more people are attracted to the benefits of managing their own fund.

We can assist you to achieve your lifestyle and financial goals for both current and future generations. We can advise you on the suitability of a SMSF and develop personalised advice that’s right for you.
