Liezl M. Quiliza-Cruz

Senior Executive
Nexus Insurance Brokers
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates


Liezl M. Quiliza-Cruz is a distinguished lady who has won the respect of Nexus Insurance Brokers, the largest independent financial advisory brokerage in the Middle East and Singapore. She is a world-class, multi-awarded Filipina financial literacy advocate based in oil-rich Abu Dhabi who is at the forefront of rallying migrants towards the road to financial freedom.

At a young age of 30, she established a name overseas as the first Filipino and the first woman who received the highest award given to a Financial Adviser in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states. In 2012, she made history as the first and only Filipino in the history of Nexus to achieve over 1.5 million dirhams in submitted business, both life and investment products.

Only six (6) years in the job, she managed to clinch the most coveted CEO Award at Nexus for three consecutive years – from 2012 to 2014. Clearly, she is a cut above the rest, making the Filipinos proud.

She belongs to the top 200 among the 38,000 members worldwide of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT). At present, she manages a growing portfolio worth USD8million with almost 800 clients for more than five (5) years in the company. For such a feat, she is looked up to today as a top notch financial adviser in the GCC and one of the most known Independent Financial Advisers in the Middle East.

She also pioneered in the conduct of Wealth Creation Seminars for free in hotels in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. She has been featured as a “Filipino Achiever” by Kabayan Weekly, a Dubai-based newspaper and “Trailblazing Filipina” by Al Hilal Printing, Publishing & Distribution LLC. In addition, she provides assistance to UAE-based Filipino organizations for livelihood and skills trainings for OFWs.

The stars of Liezl M. Quiliza-Cruz continue to shine, certainly deserving of the Bagong Bayani Award for Outstanding Employee.
