Mauritius being an international financial services centre of substance and repute, the financial services industry is characterized by strong regulation. We bring our expertise to combine a business-friendly environment with seamless regulatory compliance, risk management and assurance services to a wide array of players operating mainly in the following sectors
The Financial Services sector is interlinked with international capital markets and cross border transactions. The risks involved in providing cross-border financial services are rising constantly in line with increasing regulatory complexity and more rigorous enforcing laws since the global financial crisis. Financial service providers that provide services and products into other countries must comply with the rules of the host country and find themselves confronted with an increasing number of country-specific regulations. We help you manage these complexities through the design of robust and dependable cross-border frameworks to master market-specific requirements.
Regulation applied to fintech is still at the inception stages but is constantly and rapidly evolving.

Our expertise and understanding allow us to quickly understand your business model, determine what category of firm you are, what the products are that your offer, and also the specific regulatory requirements thereof.
We then work with you to make sure that collaboration with regulators and other authorities becomes your priority and that you stay on top of the latest compliance developments. In brief, we assist you in managing your growing exposure to regulatory requirements, sanctions, and legal actions.
With a park of over 100 hotels and more than one million tourists travelling to our island annually, hospitality has been growing at a sustained rate over the years. The country is known to be a leading destination for holidays, conferences and seminars particularly for Europeans. Accordingly, our hospitality sector including travelling agencies that work with information relating to EU citizens have to comply with the requirements of The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Mauritius Data Protection Act. We help hotels and all related businesses to set in place practices and processes for dealing with personal data. We also assist them to establish proper corporate governance framework.

Whilst Mauritius is experiencing continuous land development, with a rising number of projects being launched under the Smart City Scheme and Property Development Scheme or large scale high value real estate developments and sales are being actively promoted to international investors, we should not overlook the fact that the Real Estate Sector remains a gateway used by Money Launderers to integrate their laundered proceeds into the legitimate economy. We provide Compliance guidance to real estate and construction agents on their obligations to deter, detect, conduct Customer Due Diligence and report Money Laundering activities as recommended by the FATF, the International Monetary Fund in its Assessment Report of September 2018 and the Mauritius FIU Guidelines.
