MD Private Investment Counsel Consistently Outperforms Canada’s Top Five Firms

September 19, 2014

More than $17 billion in assets under management; only non-bank in top five

MD Private Investment Counsel (MDPIC), the discretionary investment management arm of MD Physician Services Inc. (MD), remains the largest non-bank-owned private investment counsel firm in Canada—and the only non-bank among the top five firms—according to Investor Economics Fee-based Report, Winter 2014 Edition.

MD had the largest relative growth of assets under management and outperformed the other top five firms with an increase of 15.6% over six months and 28% for the twelve-month period ending December 31, 2013.

“We are very pleased with these results. Discretionary management really resonates with our busy physician clients, since they are able to delegate the day-to-day investment decisions to their MD Portfolio Manager,” said Brian Peters, President and CEO of MD Physician Services Inc. “Trust is of the utmost importance in this kind of relationship; we take this responsibility seriously and manage a client’s savings as if they were our own.”

The results are published in the Winter 2014 Fee-based Report from Canadian financial services research and consulting firm Investor Economics. These results rank the size and growth of private investment counsel firms, excluding deposit-takers’ assets managed for personal trusts.
