Is self-managed superannuation right for me?

Self-managed superannuation is not for everyone. 

ASIC has a series of warnings for those thinking about establishing an SMSF and the ATO have their own recommendations for those considering an SMSF. 

The Australian Taxation Office has released a consumer guide comparing SMSFs with other superannuation funds. The guide provides high level comparisons across areas including:

  • Members and trustees
  • Responsibilities
  • Investments
  • Insurance
  • Regulation
  • Complaints and disputes
  • Fraudulent conduct or theft.
