The Ignition Wealth SMSF Appropriateness tool assists clients as they learn about the key responsibilities and issues associated with becoming an SMSF trustee. The tool considers the client’s responses and makes a recommendation depending on whether they meet the SMSF appropriateness criteria.


Clients complete a comprehensive and easy-to-follow fact find and are then guided through a learning centre where they engage with information about SMSFs and trustees at their own pace. The journey includes a meeting with an online adviser from the Ignition Wealth Advice Team. The investor receives an SoA together with a recommendation. If the investor is also seeking an investment solution, Ignition Wealth offers SMSF portfolios. The cost for the full journey, including the meeting with the Ignition Wealth adviser is $770 (inc GST), offering a very significant saving on the traditional model.


Should the investor require additional advice, this may be provided by their own adviser or by the Ignition Wealth team at an additional cost.
