MD Announces Executive Departure

April 20, 2016

MD Financial Management (MD) today announced that William R. Horton, Jr., Chief Investment Officer (CIO) is leaving MD. Brian Peters, President and Chief Executive Officer, will step in to take a more active role in investment management and strategy.

“I would like to thank Bill for his dedicated service to MD,” said Mr. Peters. “He has been a steady hand as CIO during eight years of extraordinary market and economic conditions. MD clients have benefited from his direction and vision through much uncertainty.”

Over the past number of years, MD’s strategic plan and investment fundamentals have driven unprecedented growth. With more than $40 billion in assets under administration, MD is the wealth management firm most trusted by Canadian physicians.1

MD is a unique financial services company with a single mandate: to improve the financial well-being of physician clients and their families. Mr. Peters said, “I look forward to continuing to work with our Board and leadership team as we build on our wealth management offering on behalf of our clients.”
