Self managed superannuation
Members in Self-Managed Superannuation Funds now hold more assets under management than any other superannuation fund class in Australia. An SMSF is a very popular retirement planning structure due to a number of reasons such as;
Control over how funds are invested. Members can see the investments grow from inception and control how much is invested in each asset class.
Greater flexibility in investment types, direct property, shares, other.
Ability to borrow in super to build assets for retirement. See Purchasing property through Superannuation.
Flexible contribution levels and methods. In specie contributions, employer, personal.
Flexible pension policies, flexible cash flow management in retirement and lead up to retirement.
Greater flexibility for retirement and the treatment of death benefits for estate planning and dependant beneficiaries.

Purchasing Property Through Superannuation
If you’re thinking about investing in property, but don’t have enough funds to make an outright purchase, you may be interested to know that it’s possible to borrow money through an SMSF. You can purchase residential investment property through a Limited Recourse Borrowing Arrangement using funds from your SMSF and receive those benefits from property investment and gearing within your personal Superannuation fund.
Did you know that your SMSF can purchase your business premises unlocking valuable equity to be better utilised in your business for growth? And you can still benefit from the long term capital gains from holding the property and controlling the lease. Our specialist team can advise you how you may be able to benefit and create wealth by investing in Business Real Property within your SMSF.
Residential or Commercial Property with Borrowings
Our specialist advisors are experts at guiding you through the process of purchasing property using a SMSF loan. If you need a referral to a lender, we also have established professional relationships with many lenders to give you more choice.
There are special conditions that are required to be met when purchasing property with borrowed funds in super so if you are thinking of pursuing this strategy it is very important that you seek specialist advice before you sign the contract.
