SMSF Lending

SMSF Lending

It is possible to use your super as security for a loan. To do so, you need to have a self-managed super fund (SMSF) which then borrows to finance the purchase.

We can assist you to establish and manage the right kind of SMSF, and then help you find the loan that best suits your purposes. Once again, we then assist with all aspects of the application process, making the process an easy one for you to be involved in.

Borrowing within an SMSF is more complicated than borrowing in your own name. There are special rules that must be followed and you really need to know what you are doing. That’s why it pays to talk to an expert to ensure that you do everything the right way and the first time.
