SMSF’s can invest in a wide range of assets as long as they are made on a commercial “arm’s length” basis. These include (but are not limited to) Australian and overseas shares, residential property, commercial property, artwork, wine, managed funds and term deposits.

A fund cannot buy assets from, or lend money to, members of the fund or other related parties (there are some exceptions such as in-house assets, listed shares and commercial property). The fund also cannot borrow money except in very limited circumstances including limited recourse borrowing arrangements.
