MD Financial Management Inc. (MD), a wealth management organization owned by the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), was the Platinum Title Sponsor of Financial Planning Week, which took place from November 20 to 26, 2016.
Financial Planning Week, now in its eighth year, was created by the Financial Planning Standards Council and the Institut québécois de planification financière. Its purpose is to raise awareness of the benefits of financial planning with a qualified professional, and to encourage Canadians to create a financial plan.
“MD acted as the Platinum Title Sponsor of Financial Planning Week because we believe in the importance of a sound financial plan,” said François Durocher, Executive Vice President at MD. “Not only is it essential for our clients to have a plan tailored to their unique financial needs, we want them to feel confident that their Advisor is providing personalized, objective advice that is in their best interests. This is why MD Advisors are paid a salary; they have no incentive to sell particular products. As a CMA firm, our only priority is our clients’ financial well-being.”
