Unlisted Managed Funds
Clients of ESUPERFUND are permitted to invest in Australian and International Managed Funds with any Fund Manager that they choose.
All Australian and International Managed Fund Investments made by your SMSF must have a Prospectus which allows you to see where the Managed Fund is investing.
To purchase Australian and International Managed Funds for your SMSF you have a number of options when you join ESUPERFUND namely:
You can use any Managed Fund Broker to acquire Managed Funds such as Investsmart.
This ensures that you do not pay any upfront commissions when you purchase Managed Funds.
In this case we will request details of your Managed Fund Investments when attending to the SMSF annual compliance requirements.
You can use the Commsec Managed Fund Platform. Details of this service can be found in the CommSec website.
The Commsec Managed Fund Service also rebates upfront commissions when you purchase Managed Funds.
In this case we will request details of your Managed Fund Investments when attending to the Fund's annual compliance requirements.
You can apply directly with the Fund Manager using their Prospectus.
In relation to record keeping for Managed Fund Investments, ESUPERFUND will send you a Checklist each year guiding you on what documentation we require to prepare your SMSF annual compliance requirements.
This is typically the Managed Fund's Annual Distribution Statement which is provided by the relevant Fund Manager at the end of each Financial Year.
