Best trustee service providers awarded

SMSF service providers

The leading service providers to SMSF trustees, as chosen by them, have been named by smstrusteenews for the seventh consecutive year.

Smstrusteenews and research house CoreData have announced the winners of the seventh annual SMSF Service Provider Awards.

The winners, across 15 categories, represent the leading providers of services and products to the SMSF sector according to the trustees who use them.

CoreData managing director Jason Andriessen, who was involved in collecting and analysing the trustee feedback, said the awards were based on two field reports conducted by the research house in June and July and so represented current views on the service providers.

In presenting the awards, Andriessen highlighted a number of key factors that were identified in choosing the leading investment product providers, including strong technical expertise, a well-diversified portfolio and long-term track record.

For the award-winning service providers, he noted proactive service and competitive rates and costs ranked highly with the trustees who voted for providers.
