There is this pride of responsibility when you are directly in control of your retirement funds. Aside from the sense of fulfillment, there is that added sense of security knowing you are centrally in charge of your retirement funds and no crooked individual to make away freely with the money you toiled all your life to build.
This majorly forms the inspiration pushing people to subscribe to the SMSF (Self-Managed Super Fund). The SMSF is a brainchild of the Australian Taxation Office and they rightly handle its regulation equally. From the operational framework of the SMSF which is a private superannuation fund, it can maximally accommodate four persons. Now all members of this private fund are required to be trustees. These members, therefore, assume direct responsibility for monitoring the management of their retirement funds as well as ratification of all decisions taken within the confines of the Australian law.
The essence of the SMSF is making you the chairman over your retirement funds. SMSF resembles other super funds in their mode of operation. The position of the trustee you take comes with its associated commitments which you are legally obliged to fulfill. You can personally build a strategy for your investments to be tailored after so that they are efficiently synchronized with your futuristic retirement life.

Your running costs for the Self Managed Super Fund should be such that it is profitably balanced by your benefits so has to ensure for cost effectiveness. It would vital to neatly preserve records and bring in a Self Managed Super Fund auditor at the end to peer through the records.
