Who? What? When? How? Advice considerations to the SMSF market

National Conference 2021

With the continued growth of the SMSF market, advice to this market will continue to attract focus. Should you advise the trustee or the members? Can you provided scaled advice? How can your advice processes assist trustees in meeting their duties?

In this session we will look at the current landscape of SMSF advice – not from a strategy perspective – but form a delivery and documentation perspective, considering existing and emerging issues.

At the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Determine when advice should be directed to the trustees or the members;
  • Understand the barriers identified in providing scaled advice and seeing how they can be addressed for SMSF advice, and;
  • Consider the implications from the Retirement Income Review and how they may affect SMSD advice into the future.
