MD Physician Services Changes Its Name to MD Financial Management

December 15, 2014

Name change emphasizes ongoing focus on core expertise: personalized financial planning and services for Canada’s physicians and their families

MD Physician Services Inc., a Canadian Medical Association (CMA)-owned wealth management organization, today announced it will operate under the name MD Financial Management Inc., effective immediately.

“MD has a new name and a vibrant new look but we are the same CMA firm that has, for more than 45 years, been delivering comprehensive, personalized financial management solutions exclusively to Canada’s physicians and their families. Our name better reflects our expertise—namely, serving physicians throughout their career, whether they are a medical student wanting to minimize debt, a new-in-practice resident thinking about incorporation, or a practising physician looking for more tax-efficient strategies,” said Mike Gassewitz, Executive Vice President, Member Solutions, at MD Financial Management.

He added, “For years, we have helped to secure our clients’ financial futures through objective advice, while offering some of the lowest fees in the business—32%1 lower than the industry average. So it is gratifying to know that the number of CMA members who choose MD as their primary financial firm is four times greater than our nearest competitor2.

“Doing what is right for our clients—whether it is offering specialized services, salaried advisors or low fees—is an essential part of our ongoing commitment to them as MD begins this exciting new era,” Mr. Gassewitz said.
