Does my SMSF need an investment strategy?

It is a requirement of all Self-Managed Superannuation Funds to have a written investment strategy.

The simple answer is yes!

The investment strategy provides the trustees with a framework and guidance for making decisions involving investments to increase members’ benefits.

An investment strategy is required to include, or at least consider:

  • The diversification of investments (a differing range of assets and asset classes)
  •  The risk and return on investments
  •  The liquidity of assets so the fund can meet its expenses and pay benefits when members retire
  •  The members’ needs and circumstances (such as their age and retirement needs)
  •  If the fund should hold insurance cover for the members

It is also important to regularly review investment strategies to take into account changing circumstances and needs of members.
