SMSF Investment Options

One of the main benefits of running your own SMSF is the ability to choose from various range of investments to help build your retirement fund. As an SMSF trustee, enjoy access to a great range of investment options you can choose from.

Xpress Super provides a low cost SMSF service by utilising specific products that have been carefully selected to provide data automation and a significant level of efficiency. The productivity gains are then passed on to the client by way of a significantly discounted flat fee.

These products are not mandatory, but utilising products outside of the embedded offering may impact on ease of data automation. Any loss of efficiency impacting on the delivery of the Xpress Super service may attract additional fees by negotiation.

Preserve your super by investing in gold and other precious metals.

Cryptocurrencies

Under the Xpress Super platform we allow for the investment of Cryptocurrencies.

When investing in Crypto in your SMSF there are a couple of things to remember:

  • You need to ensure your SMSF trust deed doesn’t restrict this type of investment.
  • Your bitcoin account needs to in the name of the SMSF (ie. name of the trustee on behalf of the fund)
  • The % of bitcoin held in your SMSF depends on your investment strategy.

You need to ensure all transactions meet the sole purpose test of the SMSF (ie. Your SMSF needs to be maintained for the sole purpose of providing retirement benefits to the members).
