Welcome to iCare SMSF!

Trusted SMSF Providers in Melbourne

With constant speculation about the government eventually doing away with pension payments for seniors, it will be superannuation that will fund our day to day lives once we reach retirement. Employers are currently required by law to make contributions into employee superannuation, with employees able to make additional contributions to their superannuation if they feel that the employer contributions will only stretch so far.

There are numerous superannuation funds available, ranging from industry specific funds through to ‘generic’ funds available from banks and other NBFIs. But it is the self managed superannuation fund that many investors are opting for while they continue to work until retirement. iCare Super can help you open a SMSF that enables you to take control of your financial future. Speak to a member of our SMSF adviser team today.

What is a SMSF?

A self managed superannuation fund (or SMSF for short) is one of the best options for those who want to exercise control over their own superannuation investments. Self managed super funds have been around for more than three decades. Today, it stands as the largest superannuation sector, given the huge size of its funds and assets as well as domestic and international investment opportunities.

If you’re interested in setting up a SMSF, the SMSF providers at iCare Super can help you establish an SMSF in Melbourne and give you the necessary guidance and assistance to control your superannuation investments.

Who Owns and Manages Self Managed Superannuation Funds?

Self managed superannuation funds consist of trustees who control them and make each and every investment decision for the fund. It is these trustees who are responsible for taking care of the legal procedures, including the annual tax filing. However, it must be noted that the Trustees don’t actually own the SMSF assets, but handle the administrative part associated with them. The actual owners are the members.
