What is a Self Managed Super Fund?

A self managed super fund (SMSF) is a trust structure which is used to manage retirement savings on behalf of the fund’s members. Investing in property as part of a SMSF is a popular superannuation strategy in Australia as it is tax effective and provides excellent financial benefits.

Buying direct property via a self-managed super fund (SMSF) can be an appropriate strategy which enables you to earn superior returns in a highly tax effective manner.
