SMSF Investment Strategies - CapitalQ

SMSF Investment Strategies

Every self-managed superannuation fund MUST have a documented Investment Strategy!  It is a requirement of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (“SIS Act”), the primary legislation governing SMSFs.

Section 52(6) of the SIS Act (and its Regulation 4.09(2)) provide that the trustee(s) of the fund must implement, and regularly review, an Investment Strategy taking into account –

  • the risks associated with the investments covered by the strategy,
  • the diversification of those investments,
  • the liquidity of those investments,
  • the fund’s ability to meet its liabilities,
  • amongst other considerations.

The fund is also required to consider the insurance needs of the members and determine whether it is appropriate to meet those needs within the self-managed superannuation fund environment on their behalf.

Now as of July 2016, Accountants may only provide advice and assist with the formulation of your fund’s Investment Strategy if they hold an Australian Financial Services Licence (“AFSL”).

Holding our own Licence allows us to provide this service, free from the biases of of a large Financial Planning Dealer Group and the Banks.

What our customers say

I would like to reiterate my personal appreciation for your time and effort toward my business.

As I first explained, due to my circumstances, preparing to deal with the ATO has been an ongoing struggle.

My primary fear was not being treated with the professionalism I required as my situation was “complex” in my mind.

My business may have been simple to you, but the fact you treated it as any other business big or small, gave me confidence that I was in good hands.

As I reviewed the documents, I was only smiling, and in some parts laughing. So you really have done a spectacular job!
