Mauritius is recognised as a leading regional centre for fund structuring and administration, for investment particularly in India and Africa as well as other Asian countries and the Middle East.
The Companies Act, the Partnership Act and the Securities Act and Rules permit establishment of open and closed ended schemes, retail, professional, hedge, private equity and venture capital funds.
Funds may also be established as protected cell companies.
Government encourages the setting up of local fund management and advisory companies with local presence. Low cost professional and administration support combined with treaty benefits enable efficient operation of funds from Mauritius.
