Self Managed Superfund Loans for Residential Properties
There are significant rules and regulations in place to govern the management of your superannuation in order to protect your retirement savings. Until recently for instance it was not possible for a superfund to borrow funds for investment purposes. This ban has now been lifted and superfunds, including self managed superfunds, are able to borrow money to directly purchase real estate or shares in order to further the investment portfolio of the fund.
