    I have looked at the member direct option for Australian Super a few times. I have also considered ING Super (direct investing) as well. However, I am now leaning more and more towards using the "Australian Shares" option within Australian Super. Low management fee, historical performance is solid and no hassles with brokerage and whatnot.

    From memory, I think this is what @The Falcon has as well. My wife's account is with this option now and I will consider moving mine into it at some stage too.

    Missed this question so emailed the author. He responded with "ING Living Super is the lowest cost that I know of at $360 p.a. and allows you to then invest in exchange traded funds (ETF) that start at only 0.04% p.a. This is a much simpler alternative to a SMSF".

    Not sure how competitive the fees are but I'm with REST Super and their Core Strategy is .6%. Quick calc shows ~2% yield after fees.

    I'd rather have all my Super in something like VAS for the next 30 years so looking for alternatives and the above sounds good :)

    How is life insurance and income protection coverage for SMSF or the other super funds mentioned above compare?

    Thanks.
