Understanding SMSF Needs:
We all want to save time. How does SMSF Community help? We concentrate information by assembling a vast majority of resources in one convenient website.
We all have a story to tell with many of the same questions and concerns regarding an SMSF. Through networking and the exchange of dialogue based within our website, we can challenge ourselves to engage the investing community as a whole. This is the mission of SMSF Community. We are dedicated to our goal of bringing together those who are seeking knowledge with those who are willing to impart their experience in the SMSF community at large.
Our goal is to provide unbiased, tangible resources based on facts presented through various mediums as a time-saving measure.
We connect you through our free SMSFCom Newsletter, articles along with the Gold Member Forum. Engage in identifying problems and presenting tangible facts with a respectful social outlet. You can make more informed decisions in various aspects of your SMSF and avoid mistakes that could cost you money.
Our Personal Story:
We started our Self-Managed Fund after the Global Financial Crisis. We lost money in our managed super fund, and as we looked at our financial and personal situation, we thought we could do a better job of running our retirement fund. After all, we lost nearly everything we had put into the fund that year and they charged a lot of money in fees for the privilege.
Why Did We Form This Website?
ASIC suggests diversification is the key to a strong investment portfolio. When we started our own fund, we began investigating some of the optional investment ideas.
We came across some information that was incomplete about a particular investment. It became obvious the individual circumstances came into play. We looked for answers such as how it was done and whether it within the ATO guidelines. Combing through various mediums after much time and effort, we discovered the investment was not the right avenue for our SMSF.
We soon realised that people need a more convenient avenue to seek to find sources and valuable information. At SMSF Community we are working hard to consolidate information and resources for you.
