Two funny things about super:

  1. It’s not an investment; and
  2. It’s not yours.

What does that mean?  Well, superannuation is a tax-effective investment vehicle for retirement managed and therefore owned, by the Trustee for you, the beneficiary.

In English, (1) it’s a low-tax environment for retirement savings; and (2) you can have a lot of say over what happens to it and how it is managed.

If you don’t want to think about super and you have a job where your employer makes payments on your behalf, that’s fine.  However, you may find in the future that a hands-off approach didn’t get you to where you want to be.

To avoid that, a thorough review of your super today is a good place to start.  These details can be quite overwhelming:

  • What exactly do you need your super to do for you?
  • Which fund should you use?
  • Which investment options fit your goals, not just your attitude to risk?
  • When can you hope to retire?
  • Should you make extra contributions?
  • Should you consider a self-managed fund?

At Prospur Financial, we work with you to answer the above questions, considering your personal situation and the things that matter to you most.  We then make a tailored plan to help you toward the life you hope for and dream about.
