We can assist you in making a smooth financial transition from working years to retirement. If you are entitled to a lump sum distribution from a company retirement plan, you are counseled on tax and investment options. When a lump sum is to be rolled over into an IRA, we will:
|•||arrange for the direct transfer of assets to avoid withholding taxes and penalties|
|•||help you choose appropriate investments in your self-directed IRA or fully manage a portfolio of investments on your behalf|
|•||design a schedule of minimum withdrawals from the IRA to avoid potential tax penalties|
|•||we can assist you in transferring an existing IRA balance into either a fully managed or self-directed IRA at BankChampaign|
We can fully manage a portfolio of investments according to a set investment strategy designed to achieve your retirement objectives within your risk tolerance. This can be a portfolio of individual stocks and bonds or a portfolio of mutual funds, whichever best fits your needs.
You retain all investment management responsibilities in a self-directed IRA and we act as an agent on your behalf. We hold the stocks, bonds, and mutual funds owned by your IRA, provide you with the investment advice, and execute trades at your direction.
