OTTAWA, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - MD Private Investment Counsel (MDPIC) advances its competitive leadership in the discretionary investment management industry by introducing two new mutual fund pools that will provide clients exposure to alternative investments. Combined with MDPIC's existing suite of products, the new mutual fund pools give clients access to advanced solutions to maximize portfolio returns while increasing diversification and reducing risk.
"Our clients deserve access to the most sophisticated solutions," stated Brian Peters, President and CEO. "So we continue to expand our offering to more precisely meet their wealth management needs.
