Self Managed Superannuation Fund


Over your lifetime you’ll probably have two main assets: a home and superannuation.

A Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) gives you control over where you invest your money. You’re not at the mercy of fund managers who invest your money based on your risk profile.

“The great benefit of having your own fund is control. You choose what you invest in…and superannuation is still the most effective tax vehicle.”

– Derek Bouman, Partner at DFK Crosbie

No matter how much the legislative changes are affecting how much you can accrue in super, it’s still the most effective tax vehicle. The government always uses it as a budgetary tool. If you’re comfortable investing in a property or term deposits rather than shares, you can. In adverse events like the global financial crisis, you can be proactive and shield yourself with a SMSF.
