ASIC has released two information sheets to improve the quality of advice provided by advisers on SMSFs, as it focuses on SMSFs as a key surveillance area

    My understanding of SMSFs are that they are more about gaining control rather than reducing fees (though this could be a side effect), so how can ASIC say an SMSF with a starting balance of $200,000 or below is unlikely to be in the client’s best interests.

    I wish ASIC would just stick to making running shoes!

    ASIC is absolutely incompetent and shall not make generic statements and apply stupid thresholds to all situations. I started my SMSF having less than $100K and it is striving over the years. Why the hell should I listen to ASIC "specialists"?
