TUESDAY 27 NOVEMBER 2012 Collins Hume hosted a very special event for self-managed super fund owners and would-be property investors billed as their Super Smart Seminar. The highlight of the evening event was a keynote presentation by Grant Abbott, Australia's leading SMSF expert, trainer and presenter. Grant and the Collins Hume team were joined by a full house of Northern Rivers SMSF owners, would be investors and local community members.
The session kicked off with a warm welcome from Collins Hume Partner and SMSF Specialist Ian Wunsch. Guest speaker Grant Abbott addressed assembled guests on investment opportunities for SMSF trustees at different stages of life, SMSF farm and business planning, preparing the various generations and the Ballina market in general.
Following the formal presentations, guests were treated to refreshments and an opportunity to mingle and delve deeper into their own SMSF queries. During the social part of the evening, Yvonne Corrigan's name was drawn as the lucky winner of the Galaxy Tab / iPad prize!
said, "Our Super Smart Seminar was designed to provide a broad overview of SMSFs and the strategies that can be implemented through them â€" already growing in interest with people who want to galvanise their wealth planning now to optimise retirement. Our role was to make that clear to all who attended and I think we succeeded in doing so."
Due to the success of the Super Smart Seminar, which was fully subscribed, the programme is likely to be repeated in 2013 with event details to be shared in due course. In the meantime, we have 20 FREE TICKETS available for Grant Abbott's 'Maximising the Potential of your SMSF' presentation at the Australian SMSF Members Association National Conference Roadshow on 7 December 2012 at the Brisbane Convention Centre. The first 20 people to phone us and request a ticket will get to attend, for free, on us.
