Self-managed super funds (SMSFs) are increasing in popularity, mostly because they let you take personal control of your super.

An SMSF can be an effective part of a retirement plan, but it's important to understand the time, costs and the government rules that apply. Here are a few ways we can help:

Self Invest

Many investors choose a direct investment option like QSuper's Self Invest as an effective alternative to an SMSF. You have greater control over your investments – invest in shares, exchange traded funds (ETFs) and term deposits, and choose when you buy and sell.

But unlike an SMSF, you won’t be lumped with piles of administration, compliance and reporting obligations.

The fees are low too (there are no set up costs), and many of the tax benefits you enjoy with an SMSF, you get with Self Invest as well.


QInvest Financial Advisers can offer sound personal advice that’s tailored to you. They know money, they know the market, and they'll make sure you know the pros and cons of an SMSF before you make any decision.
