About the SMSF Association

The SMSF Association is the independent, professional body representing Australia’s self managed super fund sector. We believe that every Australian has the right to a good quality of life in retirement and the right to control their own financial well-being.

Our Vision

Is to enable Australians to take greater control of their own financial well-being through a sustainable SMSF community.

Our Mission

Is to lead the professionalism, integrity and sustainability of the SMSF sector.

Sitting behind our
name is a strong and
clear set of beliefs

We strive to raise the standard of advice provided by all SMSF professionals and enable trustees to become better educated to make informed decisions for their retirement.

  • that every Australian has the right to a good quality of life in retirement.

  • that every Australian has the right to control their own financial well-being.

  • that how well we live in retirement is a function of how well we have managed our super and who has advised us.

  • that better outcomes arise when professional advisors and trustees are armed with the best and latest information, especially in the growing and sometimes complex world of self-managed super funds.

  • that insisting on tight controls, accrediting and educating advisors, and providing accurate and appropriate information to trustees is the best way to ensure that self-managed super funds continue to provide their promised benefits.

  • that a healthy SMSF sector contributes strongly to long term capital and national prosperity.

  • we are here to improve the quality of advisors, the knowledge of trustees and the credibility and health of a vibrant SMSF community.
