Class SMSF Benchmark Report June 2016 now available

September 28, 2016

Class has released its June 2016 SMSF Benchmark Report, an overview of data about SMSFs and administrators.

The additional analysis has been compiled in response to recent industry commentary suggesting that self managed super funds with smaller balances are not cost effective over extended periods. To apply some hard data to those discussions, Class conducted analysis on funds with balances of less than $50,000. The findings reveal:

  • the population of these lower balance funds is largely made up of funds that are new and growing, or shrinking and exiting;
  • on average these lower balance funds come and go from the <$50,000 bracket in about 2 years; and
  • given this high turnover, it is incorrect to assume that funds with low balances are sitting around for many years paying ongoing high fees.

The Report can be downloaded here.
