Sophisticated Super Strategies: Instalment Warrants and Other Current Issues

Published on 07 Apr 2008 | Took place at Sebel Playford, Adelaide , SA

Note this event was repeated in Darwin on 16 May 2008.

Recent amendments to the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (Cth) (‘SIS Act”) allow super fund trustees to invest in certain geared investments which were previously prohibited. Initially conceived to address problems caused by instalment warrants, the new rules permit many other direct borrowing strategies by fund trustees. Potential investments include all asset classes permissible under the SIS Act, for example, real estate. This represents a paradigm shift in the regulatory attitude towards the gearing of super funds. Are you ready for the instalment warrant revolution?
