In a remarkable feat, 25 advisors from the Zurich Advisory Network (ZAN) in the UAE have achieved membership in the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) and Court of the Table in just over two years, marking a significant milestone that more than doubles the previous year's qualification of 12 advisors.

This extraordinary achievement not only sets a new benchmark for excellence in the financial advisory sector but also underscores ZAN's unwavering commitment to providing top-tier financial guidance and cultivating enduring client relationships.

This devotion to quality ensures that customers receive the best guidance and support in safeguarding their financial futures."

Emphasising quality over quantity

The significance of MDRT qualification extends beyond numerical achievements, as industry experts affirm. It reflects an advisor's unwavering commitment to effectively advising and guiding premium-paying clients, fostering trust and reliability in financial decision-making processes.
