The list of speakers lined up for the second SMSF + Investor Expo is “impressive”, says the SMSF Association.
This is the second year for the SMSF + Investor Expo – being held later this week, in Melbourne – which is presented by the SMSF Association.
The speakers at the 2019 expo include new Assistant Minister for Superannuation, Financial Services and Financial Technology, Senator Jane Hume, who “can be expected to outline what the newly elected Coalition Government aims to achieve in superannuation and financial services over the next three years,” says the Association.
ATO Assistant Commissioner for Superannuation and Employer Obligations, Dana Fleming, will be giving a presentation titled understanding your obligation as an SMSF trustee – a regulator’s perspective.
Former MP Bernie Ripoll will be presenting rebuilding trust post the royal commission.
The Association noted other speakers and presentations, including: “Tim Slattery, Managing Director/CEO, of the APN Property Group, who will explain how commercial property can deliver a stable and predictable income stream, Andrew Varlamos, the Co-Founder/CEO of OpenInvest, on finding trusted professional assistance online, and Peter Switzer, Founder of the Switzer Financial Group, looking at investment opportunities for SMSFs and investors.”
SMSF Association CEO John Maroney said: “The calibre of speakers addressing this two-day Expo makes it a must-attend event for anyone managing their own super, thinking of doing so, or simply a self-directed investor.”
“It will allow them to collect resources and information at their own pace, seek out experts to answer their questions, attend complimentary information seminars and explore a range of products and services.”
“Last year’s inaugural event was an enormous success, and we are confident with the list of speakers we have addressing this year’s conference, it will be even better.”
