SMSFs: The unsung super heroes

Self-managed super funds have easily outperformed managed funds over time, in spite of super industry efforts aimed at reining them in.

Summary: Research by National Australia Bank shows self-managed super funds, rather than being involved in reckless investment strategies, have taken a more conservative approach over time and easily outperformed the large managed superannuation funds. While SMSF fees are higher than managed funds overall, their average returns have beaten the industry by more than 22%.
