Chief Investment Officer Q2 Highlights
Oil prices have stabilized since the end of the first quarter and are now aligned with the Bank of Canada projections. Although it’s still early to evaluate the full impact on the Canadian economic recovery, recently the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) stated that Canada’s reliance on energy led to a reduced outlook for growth in 2015. With market volatility on the rise and divergent central bank policies being implemented around the world, what does that mean for fixed income and what changes has MD made, if any, to position its funds, pools and portfolios for long-term success? MD Chief Investment Officer William R. Horton Jr. discusses MD’s views on the divergent economic recoveries, fixed income, deflationary trends and the tools central banks use to stimulate the economy with Mike Gassewitz, Executive Vice President, Member Solutions. MD Financial Management is owned by the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and offers expert total financial management advice to physician members of the CMA, from medical students and residents to practicing and retired physicians.
