The Janus Advantage

An Asset Transfer is the movement of money from a retirement account at another financial institution directly to a similar account. For example, you can transfer your Traditional IRA from another company directly to a Traditional IRA at Janus. You can also transfer an Education Savings Account, Roth IRA or SEP-IRA.

Advantages of transferring your existing retirement account

Simplicity - consolidate accounts from various companies into a single account.

Protect tax features - no taxes or penalties if you never take possession of the assets.

No red tape - this transaction is generally not reported to the IRS.

Convenient - Janus does the work. We'll contact the other financial institution and arrange the transaction.

  1. Have on-hand your most recent account statement for the investment(s) you're moving to Janus. You will also need the address of the institution where your assets reside.
