What exactly is an SMSF?
A self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) is a super fund where you’re in control. You’re not only a member, but also a trustee. You choose the investment strategy and manage the investments.
An SMSF is flexible enough to allow you to invest in different assets like property, private companies and international assets.
An SMSF can have up to four members. Pooling your funds to build up the balance can give your SMSF more investment options.
