Event to deliver reality check on SMSFs and the property market

API WA and FINSIA launch event to reveal facts about the impact of SMSFs on property markets.

The Australian Property Institute WA Division, along with FINSIA, has launched its first major event for 2014, the Residential Property Outlook.

The 2014 Residential Property Outlook Breakfast on the 29th of January will focus on the highly relevant topic: “Good Governance or Risky Business? Self-Managed Super Funds under the Spotlight” featuring keynote speaker Graeme Colley from the SMSF Professionals’ Associations of Australia Ltd.

Presenters will outline the risks and benefits of SMSFs within a local WA context to an audience of property, legal and financial professionals at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. Mr Colley said the growth of SMSFs had been nothing short of astronomical.

“Each year, more than 20,000 new self-managed super funds are created to look after people who just want to have the freedom to control their retirement savings. With just one million self-managed super fund members looking to invest the $500 billion they have saved; property is well within their sights,” Mr Colley said.

Joining him will be David Airey, President of the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia, Paul Blackburne from Blackburne Property Group and Monica Rule, SMSF Specialist Advisor who will also deliver their expert analysis of the topic. Adding a further dimension to the event, Michael Glendinning from Michael Glendinning Property will undertake the role of both MC and Moderator.

Delegates at this event can claim 2 x Category 2 Department of Commerce CPD points and 2 API CPD points. For more information go to www.wa.api.org.au or visit here for registration details.
