REP 576 Member experiences with self-managed superannuation funds
Released 28 June 2018
This report gives a comprehensive overview of research commissioned by ASIC into the experiences Australians have when setting up and running self-managed superannuation funds (SMSFs).
The research was conducted by an independent market research agency, and was a mix of qualitative research (interviews) and quantitative research (online survey) to explore member experiences with SMSFs.
Note: In conjunction with the member research, ASIC reviewed 250 files where personal advice to set up an SMSF was provided to clients by a financial adviser. For details of this advice review with a summary of the member research, see Report 575 SMSFs: Improving the quality of advice and member experiences (REP 575).
