Options for U.S. IRA account holders when living in Canada
What should you do with your U.S. retirement accounts after a move to Canada
Many advisors and/or firms in the U.S. – even some of the largest – are not properly registered and licensed to provide investment advice for a client living in Canada (even if the client is a U.S. citizen).
Few financial advisors are licensed, have the credentials or experience to provide investment and financial planning advice for American and Canadian cross-border clients. Sadly, there is a lot of poor counsel being provided that is not always in a client’s best interest. There are several options available to individuals that hold U.S. IRA accounts when they become a resident of Canada, but which is best for you? Cardinal Point is an advisory firm that specializes in providing cross-border investment management advice to individuals that hold Canadian and U.S. investment accounts. Download the E-Book to learn more about how we can assist you with your IRA account.
In Canada, frequently given advice includes selling out the U.S. retirement account and moving the proceeds to Canada, so that the Canadian-based advisor can manage the assets. Simply following this advice without fully understanding or determining the tax impact of such a move, can be costly and harmful.
