Moore on the SMSF property debate. Last week Morgan Stanley CEO Steve Harker fueled public debate surrounding the appropriateness of gearing in SMSF's for property investments.

Everything that you look at in Australia whether it's a bank, a commodity company, an apartment or a can of coke is 20 - 30 per cent more expensive than overseas. According to Moore, investors are buying property because it is familiar but in many cases they are doing so without fully understanding the dynamics and returns of these investments.
