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

Logo for Igor Pavic
I am very happy to be able to write this testimonial for Duncan Melbin, Abhishek Puri and the Team at CapitalQ Chartered Accountants.

When the opportunity arose for me to step up and become a Director of Office Solutions IT, and to take an ownership interest, Duncan and Abhi were the ones I turned to for advice regarding my obligations, my ownership structure, tax minimisation and management of my business interests moving forward.

They have also assisted me with my property investing and development activities.

They always return my calls promptly, are always available when I need to see them and their straight forward advice is always spot on.

Director, Office Solutions I.T.
