A major reason for the growing popularity of self-managed super funds (SMSF) if the level of investment freedom they offer.
In addition to the usual benefits you have with investing in the superannuation* environment, with an SMSF you can create your own investment strategy and select from a broader range of investments. The other advantages include potentially greater tax and estate planning flexibility and the opportunity to set up one fund for up to four people.
