Self-Managed Superannuation Funds
Drive your own destiny by taking control of one of your largest financial assets.
For most of us, apart from our ability to earn money, superannuation represents our largest financial asset and the key to how comfortable our retirement will be.
It also happens to be one of the most tax-effective and flexible retirement investment vehicles.
So, it certainly pays to know where your super is headed. Yet how many of us actually do?
Undoubtedly, the best way is to take control of it yourself with a self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF). As its name implies, it’s owned and operated by you.
So, instead of simply paying into a large retail or industry super fund, you become the trustee/s of your own fund and make all its investment decisions.
It’s not that uncommon, either.
In fact, SMSFs now account for over 30% of all super assets in Australia.
How Hood Sweeney can make you master of your own destiny.
Hood Sweeney is your one-stop self-managed super shop with integrated SMSF services. Our self-managed superannuation accounting team handles the establishment, taxation and compliance, while strategic financial advice is delivered by our Financial Planners through Hood Sweeney Securities (Australian Financial Services Licence 220897).
With Hood Sweeney, the first thing to know is that ‘self-managed’ doesn’t mean you have to run it all by yourself. Our dedicated SMSF team will be beside you every step of the journey.
For instance, we closely monitor the regulators and we’ll swiftly alert you of any rule changes, so you can respond accordingly and, where possible, benefit as soon as possible.
For your absolute peace of mind, we also insist that your SMSF is independently audited, ensuring that your fund is always compliant with the relevant laws and regulations.
And all along the way, we’ll deliver quality advice to make sure your SMSF provides a flexible and tax-efficient retirement and estate-planning structure, suited to your specific requirements and personal financial goals.
