Creating and running a Self Managed Super Fund (“SMSF”) sounds complicated.
And yes, there is considerable government regulation and compliance. So it’s complicated and tricky. And set-up and running costs can be high. So why then do people still want SMSFs?
In short, SMSFs can give investors greater flexibility, greater returns and allow them to control their own superannuation. Depending on the size of your fund, the running costs of an SMSF can be offset by the superior returns possible in your SMSF and sometimes lower than the fees charged in retail funds.
In terms of flexibility, most retail super funds are quite limited as to where they will place your retirement savings. SMSFs, on the other hand, can participate in a vast range of investments including property development, cryptocurrencies, artworks and more.
