Luke on 2CC – What to look for in a good super fund?

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in Money Matters, which aired on Friday 15 March 2024 with Leon Delaney. This week’s show considers superannuation funds. What makes a good super fund and what makes a bad one? The show encourages listeners to consider their own retirement savings and make sure their fund is right for their needs. Thanks for joining us on 2CC or your favourite podcast streaming service.

Key topics covered include:

  • Are you in the right super vehicle for your needs? It’s like finding the right car.
  • It’s not just about price, price is only one factor to consider.
  • What investment option or investment menu do you have access to?
  • Franking credits also matter, are they paid back to you?
  • Insurance arrangements also differ between funds, with different waiting periods and different coverage rates.
  • How does the fund charge the fees? Don’t forget about the ICR of the fund.
  • Income distributions also occur differently between different types of funds.
  • Luke shares his top tips when comparing funds.
