  • At Hillyer Riches SMSF Advisory, Caulfield we can set you up with a fund and provide fixed price fees for the on-going administration. Very simply, a SMSF is a super fund that you fully control. You make all the investment choices:

    • Shares
    • Managed Funds
    • Cash Term Deposits
    • Business Tax and business advice

    Many other assets - over your lifetime you’ll probably have two main assets: a home and superannuation.
