SMSF statistics from the ATO

The statistic reports for the self-managed super fund (SMSF) market are published regularly by the ATO on a quarterly basis, to reflect the changes in the industry. This means that it would include all the details of the wounded up/established funds during recent financial years and an estimated amount of the assets held by SMSF’s for each type of asset.

The report includes wide ranges of information, but mainly focuses on:

  • SMSF population and asset allocation tables
  • Annual SMSF population analysis tables (such as membership sizes, member demographics, flow of funds, etc…)
  • SMSF quarterly establishment tables (such as age of new members, and income range of new members, etc…)

As at December 2020, the total number of SMSF’s was 593,790 with a total number of 1,114,972 Members across all SMSF’s.

The table below is an extraction of the statistic report from the Tax Office, which was published on 04 May 2020.
