SMSF insurance

As the trustee of your self-managed super fund, from 7 August 2012 you are required to regularly review the investment strategy of your fund and consider insurance cover for members. While self-managed superannuation is the fastest growing segment of the superannuation industry, it's also one of the most underinsured.

As part of the IOOF group, you have access to the IOOF SMSF Insurance product – an easy-to-use, cost-effective insurance solution for your self-managed super, whether it’s an SMSF or a SAF.
