Bruised investors looking for a safety-first path in #SMSF (Self Managed Super)

Global financial volatility has made investors increasingly focused on the type of assets they hold, with many choosing to move out of conventional superannuation funds into self-managed super funds (SMSFs). These are described by PIMCO head of global wealth management Peter Dorrian as tending to be “property and cash heavy”, with Providence Wealth managing director Grant Patterson also pointing out government bonds, particularly American treasuries and bonds, as a potential “bubble” class of investments that nonetheless should provide some stability in the future.

Peter Burgess, national technical director of the Self-Managed Super Fund Professionals Association of Australia (SPAA), also considers liquidity an important consideration for asset allocation in such funds.
