Is this doable without paying an early withdrawal penalty - and, if so, how would it be done?
1. You must find a bank or broker who is willing to act as the IRA custodian for the shares. These typically charge several hundred dollars a year in fees.
2. You must transfer funds from the FolioFN IRA to the new custodian.
3. You must direct the custodian to buy the shares--you must not participate in the transaction yourself.
FolioFN will probably charge you a transfer fee and an account closing fee. Check your fee schedules.
As long as the money goes from IRA to IRA, there is no early withdrawal penalty.
However I am not a lawyer or a tax expert and I suggest that you consult with one before embarking on this project.
