The Australian Securities & Investments Commission’s deputy chairman Peter Kell says the financial planning industry needs to lift its game when it comes to providing advice to the $A697bn self-managed superannuation fund sector. Kell was commenting on an ASIC report which contends that nine out of every 10 SMSFs are "underpinned" by sub-standard financial advice. The number of SMSFs grew by an average of 5.2 per cent a year between 2010 and 2017, while there were over 590,000 SMSFs at the end of June 2017.
