Wine and whiskey - Are they super businesses? paper


This paper focuses on self-managed super funds. The alcohol industry raises some interesting issues including:

  • winery and peat bog – can they be owned by a super fund?
  • what if the fund owns and runs the business?
  • what happens when a member retires (or dies)?
  • how will the fund auditor view all this?
