Can I borrow through my Self Managed Superannuation Fund?

Home ยป FAQs

Investing your superannuation in direct property could now be an option in your retirement strategy, thanks to recent changes to the laws governing self-managed superannuation funds. The changes provide an opportunity for a self managed super fund (SMSF) to borrow money to acquire a beneficial interest in an asset such as property. Prior to this reform, property could be purchased within a super fund but it usually had to be bought outright as the fund was not allowed to borrow a portion of the total cost. For this reason, many investors with self-managed super funds have up until now primarily focused on the share market or indirectly invested in property via property funds or trusts. A self-managed super fund gives you control of your super destiny, but its complex rules can be daunting to the uninitiated. Expert advice is necessary and will help facilitate a smooth set-up, as well as ensure any borrowing and investment falls within the rules of the fund. Products and the use of the borrowed funds are restricted so if you require any further information on the new products available I am only too happy to provide information and referrals to other professionals to help get you started.
