Would you like to control your financial destiny?
Think you could do a better job with your retirement savings than your super fund?
Anything is possible if you Keep It Super Simple (KISS).
The KISS approach to creating wealth through your Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) will explain how to take control and KISS your big superannuation fund goodbye.
Most Australians understand that their superannuation provides money when they retire, but not many take the time to look at the various alternatives available to build more wealth in a most tax-effective way along the way.
Authors and superannuation experts Barbara Smith and Ed Koken have been concerned about the disappointing investment returns in most people's superannuation funds over the last few years. Whether this be due to the global financial crisis, poor management, excessive fees or all of the above, they are convinced there is a better, more simple and straightforward way to build and protect retirement savings.
Throughout this book they show just how easy it is to set up and manage your own superannuation money. They explain in plain English how to start your own SMSF, different investment approaches and strategies you can follow, managing cash flow, tax, insurance, how the superannuation laws apply to SMSFs, and much, much more.
