MD Precision™ – Increasing the Probability of Strong, Long-Term Investment Performance

December 7, 2015

MD Financial Management Inc. (MD), a Canadian Medical Association (CMA)-owned wealth management organization, today announced the introduction of MD Precision™. The patent-pending, proprietary fund management process helps to increase the probability of strong, long-term performance for its clients, who are Canada’s physicians and their families.

MD Precision combines MD’s decades of experience with the expertise of specialist asset managers from around the world. It uses proprietary algorithms and technical processes—as well as qualitative and quantitative data—to develop forward-looking estimates for possible investment strategies. These estimates enable MD Portfolio Managers to manage each fund and pool based on robust predictions of future performance and prudent calibration of investment risk.

The MD Precision name demonstrates the rigour that this patent-pending process uses to achieve performance outcomes. The process is not new, but its naming confirms the unique expertise in fund management that MD brings to its clients.

“We designed MD Precision to help us hold the right investments, with the right weight at the right time, which means there is a greater probability of better performance,” said Craig Maddock, Senior Portfolio Manager and Vice President of Investment Management at MD. “Our clients’ financial well-being is our top priority. MD Precision enables us to make what we believe are the best investment decisions, so our clients stay on track to meet their financial goals.”
