More than 60 years ago, the Canadian Medical Association realized that Canadian physicians needed an effective and affordable way to save for retirement. That realization gave birth to the registered retirement savings plans that all Canadians enjoy today—and, in 1969, to MD Financial Management ("MD").
Fifty years later, we’re holding true to our original mandate: to help Canadian physicians and their families achieve their financial goals at every stage of their career. We’ve been successful through the decades by being open-minded to change and always looking for new ways to help our clients achieve their long-term goals.
On March 27, 2019, MD became a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Bank of Nova Scotia ("Scotiabank") and operates as a distinct business division following MD's own investment philosphy. Together, MD and Scotiabank® now provide Physicians and their famiily members with new ways to take advantage of more financial solutions. With Scotiabank behind us, we can benefit from their tools, technologies and strategic partnerships to provide a better MD client experience and make it easier for MD clients to do business with us.
