How do I apply for a Self-Managed Super Fund?

eToro clients who are residents of Australia may apply for a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF).

An SMSF is a superannuation trust structure that provides benefits to its members upon retirement. The main difference between SMSFs and other super funds is that SMSF members are also the trustees of the fund.

If you are a resident of Australia and would like to apply, please download and fill out eToro’s Self-Managed Superfund Application Form, and then send it to us in a ticket via our Customer Service Center. We also require the documents below for an SMSF application, and we reserve the right to request additional documents.
