Mauritius has been a leading international Financial Centre (IFC) for the past two decades. It is at the forefront of banking, corporate services, fintech, funds, investment management and private wealth.

The framework for our IFC is one of the strongest in the world, designed to bring clarity and transparency to the world of finance.

As one of the best regulated IFCs, we have been acknowledged by independent assessments from some of the world’s leading bodies, including the World Bank and IMF, as well as scoring top marks from the OECD on tax transparency.

The value of an International Finance Centre (IFC) is largely reputational, and Mauritius has met expectations by ensuring a strong legal and regulatory framework, good corporate governance, an array of modern financial products and licensable business activities and services and not to mention competitive operational costs.
