Self-managed super funds (SMSF) are a way of saving for your retirement. An SMSF is a private superannuation fund that you manage yourself. Knowing everything about a self-managed super fund (SMSF) is not a prerequisite to having one but having one may be beneficial to you. On the contrary, it may also not be for you at all.
At Fortuna, our specialised advisors discuss your objectives to help you decide whether an SMSF would be the best investment vehicle given your circumstances. We then work to establish, structure, manage and advise on your fund should you choose to have one.

Knowing that you have our constant support, advice and assistance whenever you need it can position you well to capitalise on the benefits of having an SMSF, if at all.
