How is your financial adviser performing?
With the performance of the share market during the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 (and the following years), many investors started to doubt the usefulness, or the benefit, of their own financial advisor. Here are some questions for your adviser.
Many investors expressed a desire to take more control of their finances, and their investments, and their superannuation. Many embarked on the joureny of establishing a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF).
Can you invest directly in shares?
You might be able to invest directly in shares, using funds from your SMSF. It depends on things like the investing rules that are written up within your fund's documentation. Ask your professional adviser.
Why invest from your SMSF?If you believe that it is possible to "time the market", then perhaps it is worth considering using some SMSF funds to invest in the share market. Let it be said that there are many investors and traders around the world who do successfully time the market, even inspite of so-called professional advice that it is not possible to do this. If there are thousands of people who can do it using proven strategies, then it can be done.
CautionBe careful not to run a business from an SMSF - such as that of a share trader with frequent share trades (a very grey area). Remember that a super fund must be administered for the sole purpose of providing retirement benefits for fund member(s), and not itself run a business. Consult a qualified professional for advice on this aspect. Investment decisions need to be in line with the documented investment strategy for the fund.
