MD Private Investment Counsel (MDPIC) is the discretionary investment management arm of MD Financial Management. With discretionary investment management, you delegate your MDPIC Portfolio Manager to make investment decisions on your behalf. MDPIC provides a highly structured, personalized approach to managing money for high-net-worth individuals.

The minimum investment is $750,000.

However, you can access MDPIC through MD Apertura™ starting at $200,000.* MD Apertura, MD’s virtual service channel, is a web-based video conference tool that provides convenient access to MD advisory services and enables clients to have meetings with their Portfolio Manager in collaboration with their MD Advisor.

*The minimum requirement to establish a discretionary relationship is $200,000 household investable assets placed with MDPIC. Clients are eligible to transition to in-person servicing once they reach the $750,000 account minimum requirement.

Your MDPIC Portfolio Manager will work with you to design a portfolio that suits your personal investment objectives and risk tolerance level. Each of the investment pools in your account is managed by leading asset managers from around the world, with the goal of increasing returns relative to the market, while reducing overall risk.

MDPIC shows your personal rate of return (also known as money-weighted rate of return). This performance calculation is a representation of how your investment has actually performed, rather than the return on the investment itself. Any deposits or withdrawals you made during the period are included in the calculation.

Your MDPIC account(s) is monitored regularly to ensure it remains in line with your personal investment strategy. Should your account drift from its investment strategy due to market fluctuations or account transactions, it will be automatically rebalanced to your original asset allocation.

Through the MDPIM Global Tactical Opportunities (GTO) Pool, MD Financial Management makes ongoing adjustments to your portfolios based on anticipated changes in the market. At no additional charge to you, the GTO Pool adjusts your portfolios to take advantage of market opportunities, in anticipation of market risks, or both. We believe the tactical portfolio adjustments made through GTO Pool may help to improve your investment performance.

You are charged a percentage of assets under management based on your MDPIC portfolio balance. Fees on funds held in non-registered accounts are eligible for a tax deduction.
