How to Transfer an Account From Constellation Trust to Wealthsimple

We’ve been working with Constellation to streamline the transfer process, and we now have the ability to complete the transfer completely through the Wealthsimple website!

Here's how to do it:

Before completing starting your transfer, make sure you have the specific account type (IRA, Roth IRA, Personal Account, etc) open with Wealthsimple. You can add these accounts on the Add Account Page.

Please note: Some account types require paper applications to open (ie. Joint Accounts, Beneficiary IRAs, Trusts, UTMA/UGMA). Please contact us if you'd like to open these accounts.

1. Login to your Wealthsimple account and make sure to open the type of account you are looking to transfer over on your profile.

2. Navigate to the "Funding page" of your account and click "Transfer an existing account"

3. Select the account type your transferring. Note: you'll need to have added the account on the Add Account Page before you select it here.

4.  Add "Tactical Asset Allocation" as the institution name, the account title, and the Constellation account number.

5. Upload a statement of the account.

6. Sign the transfer form. Advisors: Please note that the signature page will not be accessible when accessing an account from the Advisor dashboard. The form can only be signed when logged in with the client’s username and password.

4. We'll coordinate with Constellation to move the account over here. These processes typically take up to 7-10 business days to process.

We will also reimburse the transfer fee that your Constellation charges.

If you have any trouble with your transfer, feel free to reach out to us at advisors@wealthsimple.com or call us at 1(416)543-3314.
