The New Super Made Easy

Your Guide to Superannuation as Investment 

Daryl Dixon and Barry Martin, (1989)

Like its predecessor, Super Made Easy, this book turns a complex topic of superannuation into a readable, practical guide and provides strategies to help individuals make the most of their super.

Daryl Dixon and Barry Martyn show how to take the right approach to super in relation to investing and taxation and understand the fundamentals of super funds, as well as making super contributions and withdrawing benefits. They include a detailed section on super versus other investments such as the family home and cash investments.

In the section “How strategies work”, the authors outline a number of issues including:

  • how employees can plan for retirement
  • choosing a lump sum or pension
  • public sector schemes
  • women and superannuation.
