BOSTON-By 2011, Baby Boomers will move roughly $2.1 trillion out of individual retirement accounts (IRAs), according to analysts. And approximately $1.9 trillion is likely to roll out of the control of whichever company holds them now and into the hands of a competitor, according to Laura Varas, an analyst with Financial Research Corp. (FRC) in Boston.

Adding in the anticipated rollover of defined contribution and 401(k) plans, in addition to investment-only accounts, the total amount of assets in play is expected to be close to $5.1 trillion.
