I was hoping to get some information on superannuation. Basically, I have only recently started working a 'real' job. However, most of my income is in the form of cash and/or check, as I do contracted work. I was hoping someone might be willing to give me some information and advice on starting up a super fund. Lately I have heard alot about different funds (self managed, directed etc...) and am confused as to what I should be looking for. How exactly does a super fund operate? How do super funds differ from each other? What should I consider when looking for a fund? Can you change funds easily if you aren't happy? I heard lately that a super fund is probably the most important investment most people will make. Whether or not that is entirely true, it does make sense that I should put some thought into it. If anyone could help point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
