What now for Class Limited?
SMSFs are finding real favour among Australians, as they give people the ability to choose investments and minimise tax; as a result, the sector is surging. The SMSF sector is the fastest growing sector of Australia’s super system. And it’s a major concern to the big funds because they’re losing members.
SMSFs now comprise about one-third of Australia’s $2.04 trillion superannuation system .
Close to 600,000 self-managed super funds are now in operation, according to the latest statistics released by the Australian Taxation Office. The average balance of a SMSF now exceeds $1 million.
Class Limited is a company servicing a growing sector, which can only get bigger. The share price continues to find higher levels of support, which tells you what you need to know.
The trend is up. Until the chart of the company share price says otherwise, the outlook for this company looks satisfactory for the immediate future.
