SMSF Association CEO Andrea Slattery says the Association’s 2017 National Conference could not be at a more opportune time, given the recent changes to superannuation, and is expected to attract a record number of delegates.
“The recent passage through Parliament of the Government’s superannuation reforms, when coupled with the decision to legislate to improve the professional standards of financial advisors, will have an enormous impact on the SMSF sector,” Slattery said.
The 2017 SMSF Association National Conference will be held in Melbourne on 15-17 February 2017.
“Delegates to the conference will have the unique opportunity to hear from SMSF specialists and key government and regulatory spokespeople about how these significant changes will have an impact both the industry and their businesses.”
“These insights will prove invaluable for SMSF businesses having to adapt to the new superannuation legislation as well as more rigorous standards around financial advice. 2017 will be a momentous year for the SMSF sector, and attending the National Conference will be critical in ensuring SMSF Association members are fully cognisant of what all these changes will mean for their trustee clients.
“It’s fair to say 2016 has seen of lot of change, and SMSF trustees are looking to their SMSF specialists to provide the advice needed to navigate the new industry environment.”
Speakers at the 2017 SMSF Association National Conference include the Commissioner of Taxation Chris Jordan, ASIC Deputy Chair Peter Kell and Federal Treasury Head of Retirement Incomes Policy Jenny Wilkinson.
Registrations for the conference are open now, with early bird registration closing on Friday the 2nd of December 2016.
