The MD Advantage

Number one with Canadian physicians, because we put physicians first.

Four times more physicians trust MD1, because our only business imperative is to enhance physicians’ financial outcomes by focusing on their distinctive needs and operating in their best interests. The Canadian Medical Association (CMA), as sole shareholder, has given MD the single mandate of advising physicians in order to achieve financial well-being.

Supported by more than 45 years of physician-focused experience, MD’s Advisors and teams of experts provide a comprehensive financial plan, advice and solutions specific to physicians’ needs at every stage of their career, from medical school to practice and through retirement.

MD’s Advisors work on salary, not commission. Without incentives to sell any particular product, our Advisors provide objective advice that is in our clients’ best interests.

Objectivity is also part of our unique approach to fund management. It’s an approach based on disciplined oversight and unbiased selection from among the world’s best asset managers.

Our priority is for clients to meet their financial goals, not for us to maximize corporate profits.

MD delivers industry-leading value by providing physician-focused advice and asset managers from among the world’s best, at some of the lowest fees2 in Canada. With over $40 billion in assets under administration, MD has been recognized by several industry third parties for client satisfaction and growth.
