Investments: What can I do with my SMSF?

November 2016

Generally, as an SMSF trustee you are free to invest in any assets that will contribute to your retirement savings. Provided that at the time of the investment, you have a genuine and bona fide belief that a particular investment is appropriate for your SMSF and it is accommodated within your investment strategy, then you are on a safe footing. Even where that investment may turn out to be a poor one, resulting in the SMSF losing money, your decision will still be considered to be appropriate by the Regulator, the ATO.
