When introduced thirty years ago, no one would have guessed how controversial super would be. The media tends to focus on negatives, the government is forever changing the rules around it, and most people misunderstand how to optimise it due to its technical complexity.
Then again, anyone in the mid-stage of their career might be somewhat happy with their accumulated super balance and even surprised by its value.
On the other hand, perhaps your super balance could have been noticeably larger by now if you had accessed quality limited advice from time to time.
Do not fail to give attention to your super and find out how best to manage it as a personal asset. Why? Because the opportunity cost of doing so can reduce your income in retirement by between 10 and 20%, meaning a much-reduced lifestyle in retirement.
There are various opinions about what is best when it comes to super. Wisdom would say ignore opinions and find out the facts. Most individuals are financially unaware of how to optimise super as a personal asset, so obtaining quality yet affordable advice and service from a trusted source can be beneficial.
