Investment industry experts joined Mr. Horton on the panel to discuss the current state as well as the future of asset management in Canada.
Mr. Horton commented on the value of financial advisors and their advice in the asset management process; the importance of advisors remaining goal-focused and aware of a client’s investment time horizon; and the need for investment industry participants to “do the right things” to enhance the level of trust with regulators and investors. In addition, Mr. Horton emphasized the unique position that MD Physician Services holds in the investment industry, as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Canadian Medical Association providing financial management advice and services exclusively for Canada’s physicians and their families.
