Control - The fund assets are controlled by the Trustees who are also the members. The Members (acting as the trustees) make all decisions.
Family Fund - Up to four family members can join the fund.
Flexible Benefits in Retirement - A SMSF is the most flexible fund for taking benefits in retirement, whether the benefits are taken as lump sums, pensions or a combination of both.
Investment Choice - The Trustees have complete discretion when it comes to the choice of investment and generally have a wider selection than retail superannuation funds (e.g. direct property investment) or more limited (e.g. term deposits only)
Fees - The self-managed superannuation fund fee structure may provide substantial savings when compared with retail superannuation funds.
Flexibility - Trustees have the flexibility to make decisions with respect to changing market movements and options for retirement income streams.
Estate planning – the family and not some external trustee can make the decisions on the death of a member.
