Which type of super fund is right for me?
These are useful lower cost funds but can have limited investment choices and insurance options.
These are run by large financial services companies and typically provide a broad range of investment options and a selection of insurance options.
Run by employers for their employees but have become less common since industry and retail funds became more competitively priced.
Self-managed Super Funds (SMSFs)
The largest segment of the superannuation industry, SMSFs can give you complete control of your investment strategy and insurance options, within the legislative framework.
