Self-Managed Super Funds — Not Always So Super?

A self-managed super fund is a private super fund that you manage yourself. It can have up to four members, all of whom are responsible for decisions and compliance with the law.

Clearly, a lot of people like this idea — in 2015-16 there were almost 600,000 self-managed super funds, comprised of over one million members. Together, they had combined assets of almost $700 billion and represented 30% of the superannuation sector in Australia.

All those people can’t be wrong, can they? Well, no, not all of them…

This information session will cover the advantages, disadvantages and legal issues surrounding self-managed super funds so that you can make an informed decision about where to put your money. Following a short presentation, audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions.
