  2. What we learn from history is that most people don’t learn from history.
  3. Diversification is protection against ignorance.

What are the best structures for owning an investment property : Ken Raiss

  • Decide your structure well before you buy
  • Buy a family home in your personal name Ken Raiss
  • For investments ask what you expect out of it
  • Trusts can be an option depending on what you want
  • A self-managed super fund is a form of trust with tax benefits later on
  • Ask what your primary source of income is when deciding tax advantages for the type of trust you choose.
  • Property trusts for personal and discretionary trusts for businesses
  • Trusts with family lineage clauses
  • Testamentary trust set up after death as part of a will
  • Specific advice for your particular circumstances are ideal
