Why advice is important

SMSFs are complex

SMSF advice is a highly complex area that requires special accreditation and experience.

There aren’t many financial advisers who specialise in this area.

Strict compliance rules

Advisers can partner with you to help navigate the rules, manage the risks and work strategically to meet your fund’s objectives. As trustees or directors you’ll remain responsible for ongoing management of your fund including any compliance obligations.

Optimise investments

Making your SMSF assets work hard is crucial. Advisers can help with insurance and investment options. And provide support when transitioning to retirement.
