Leading property investment adviser Michael Yardney, of Metropole Property Strategists warns that most Baby Boomers won’t have a big enough nest egg to retire comfortably.

In is Property Investment Update blog Yardney explains that the Australian superannuation industry lost $18.5 billion of their clients’ money in the last financial year.

He cites a poll that shows that Baby Boomers are retiring, on average, on about $200,000. This is considerably below the $1 million figure generally accepted by the financial planning world that you need to retirement and live comfortably.

By the way… Michael Yardney thinks you need much, much more and says it’s little wonder that more and more Baby Boomers are looking at taking control of their financial future and setting up Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF.)

He explains that more Baby Boomers are setting up their own Self Managed Super Funds and taking their destiny in their hands. Many are investing in shares, but more and more are investing in property.

Yardney’s personal preference is for property, largely due to the fact that residential real estate has proven itself to be less volatile than shares or managed funds.

Combining the security of bricks and mortar with the tax office changing superannuation regulations back in 2007 so that people can borrow within their own SMSF’s, it is not surprisingly that real estate is becoming an increasingly popular super fund cash cow.
