MD Physician Services Inc. Chief Investment Officer William Horton Jr., CFA, appeared on BNN’s Market Sense program to discuss MD’s experience adding alternative investments to the asset classes available to MD investors. MD is offering the alternatives through two new investment pools, launched in February.
In a segment called "Health of the Markets," Mr. Horton spoke about how alternative investments differ from traditional asset classes, opening up what he called a "universe of opportunity" for investors. The inclusion of alternative investments in a portfolio can also reduce overall portfolio risk, he explained. He also discussed MD’s current tactical asset allocation, including “tilts” implemented over the past quarter to increase exposure to equities, especially in Europe, Asia and the Far East.
Mr. Horton was pleased to be able to share MD’s thought leadership in providing value for investors over the long term through this interview, which can be viewed on the BNN website. (Note that the video may take 15-30 seconds to appear on the page, and is available in English only.)
