Adatia flies flag in Japan

Moneywise Investments director Pankaj Adatia has been chosen to carry the flag for the UK at the opening ceremony of the annual Million Dollar Round Table meeting in Chiba, Japan in April.

The MDRT is an international association for high-earning financial advisers which has more than 32,000 members in 74 countries.

Adatia, who has been a financial adviser for 35 years and a member of the Million Dollar Round Table for 30 years, is one of two top of the table members in the UK.

The association meets annually in a different location to discuss how its members can improve their technical knowledge and selling ability while maintaining ethical standards.

Adatia says: “I am very excited. This is my dream come true. I have been a member for 30 years and in the past, when I have seen people holding the flag, I have wished it was me. I am extremely thrilled and will have to buy a new suit.”
