Mauritius offers an ideal legislative framework and conditions for the creation of trusts and their administration. They are governed by the Trusts Act 2001. Trusts do not require registration thus providing absolute confidentiality. Trusts can be used inter alia for:
Estate and Succession Planning
Protection from forced heirship rules
Holding of Investments and Property
Charitable & Philanthropic Purposes
The Private Trust Company (PTC) can be used to provide trusteeship services to a limited number of trusts either for the benefit of a single family or for the benefit of different branches of a family or for distinct family groups.
