What can an SMSF invest in?
Having an SMSF will allow you to access some investments that retail funds will ordinarily not allow. This can be liberating, whilst allowing greater control over how your money can work for you.
Some of these investments may include;
- investing in direct property;
- borrowing to buy direct property;
- purchasing your business premises;
- listed shares outside the ASX 300; and
- private company shares.
It is important to note, that there are restrictions on some of the investments listed above. Whilst you can invest in them, it is important that you seek professional advice to ensure that all the compliance requirements are met and they are in accordance with your investment strategy.
