Planning is Key to Financial Success

November 23, 2015

MD Financial Management Inc. (MD), a Canadian Medical Association (CMA)-owned wealth management organization, was the Gold Sponsor of Financial Planning Week, Vision 2020, which took place from November 15 - 21, 2015.

Financial Planning Week was created by the Financial Planning Standards Council (FPSC) to raise awareness of the importance and benefits of financial planning with a qualified professional, and to encourage Canadians to create a financial plan.

“For over 45 years, MD has provided comprehensive financial planning, advice and solutions to our clients – Canada’s physicians and their families”, said François Durocher, Executive Vice President, Member Experience at MD. “We continue to support Financial Planning Week because we truly believe that a financial plan can help families achieve greater financial well-being and peace of mind.”

To help MD clients be financially secure, MD Advisors work on salary, not commission – a factor that sets MD apart. Without incentives to sell products, advisors are able to provide objective and personalized advice for every stage of a physician’s life and career – from medical school and residency to starting a practice, through to retirement.

For more information on MD’s approach to financial planning, which benefits more than 100,000 physician and family clients across Canada, visit the online edition of The Globe and Mail, November 16, Financial Planning special feature.
