MZ's corporate identity was developed to emphasize commitment to the clients. Why the dolphin?
It is the only aquatic creature capable of defeating a shark, thanks to its speed, strength and resilience (competitiveness)
It never falls into a deep sleep. While one half of its brain is sleeping the other is fully alert (24x7 services)
It is exceptionally adaptable, being equally at home in a tank and the open sea, as well as extremely sociable (relationships)
It constantly breaks with convention, creating its own pace among the waves, while exploring new possibilities (makes things happen)
The logo also represents an upward pointing arrow (commitment to survival, growth and perpetuity)
The MZ Group is one of the global coordinators of IR Global Rankings, helping companies continuously improve their IR programs and meet global best practices through benchmarking and peer comparison.
