What can I invest in with my SMSF?

Managing your own super fund can give you access to a broader range of investments on top of the usual shares, term deposits, managed funds and property. With Selfmade, you can take advantage of extra investment options such as exchange traded funds, mFunds and warrants.

The facts

The majority of investments made by SMSFs are in:

  • Cash
  • Term deposits
  • Listed securities
  • Trusts
  • Managed funds.
Given that borrowing is heavily restricted for SMSF investments, direct property is typically concentrated within funds with large balances.
See the breakdown of SMSF investment types below.
