Do-it-yourself super via a Self Managed Super Fund is becoming an increasingly popular choice for people who want to have control of how their superannuation funds are invested. Rather than relying on someone else to make investment decisions (like in a pooled fund) you are responsible and the trustee of your own fund.

Control over investment decisions
Good investment returns
