What Can You Invest Your Super In?
When you set up a self managed super fund (SMSF) you are in control of how your superannuation is invested. It’s important to have an investment strategy that will help you achieve your retirement savings and lifestyle goals.
Here are some of the popular assets our clients are investing their super in:
- Residential or Commercial Property
- Australian and International Shares
- Gold & Silver
- Cash and Term Deposits
Many of our clients have used their superannuation to buy an investment property, either buying it individually, or pooling the funds of up to four people as part of their trust structure. Having a tangible asset that not only accrues in value, but also provides a positive cash flow stream in retirement is one of the main reasons so many people prefer to use their SMSF to buy property.
Having the freedom to invest in the Australian or International companies or indexes that you have researched and chosen yourself are one of the main reasons that our customers switch from a traditional managed fund to a Squirrel SMSF. If you think you could generate higher returns for your fund than your current fund manager, then this may be a great option for you.
Gold, Silver and other precious metals are often seen as safer investment than shares as they tend to hold their value and are generally protected from PES factors such as inflation and civil unrest. They are not risk free, but this investment type is popular with many SMSFs.
Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin are a brand new asset class that many of our SMSF customers are utilising as part of their high risk diversification strategies. If you have researched cryptos and believe that investing in them could help you build your wealth for retirement, you can start an SMSF to invest your super in them.
Whether you’re undecided on your investment strategy, or just want to hold your super in a term deposit for the time being; this is possible with a Squirrel SMSF. Find out more on cash and term deposits today.
From Gold to Fine Art, Antiques to Jewellery; our customers are diversifying their portfolios by investing in collectibles. If you have expertise in collectible assets and believe they could bring you a good return for your super, then you can use your SMSF to invest in them.
