In only 18 months, African Leadership College has grown from a small start-up team to an institution with over 300 students and 120 staff. It was recently recognised by CNN as the ‘Harvard of Africa’. This would not have been possible without a partner like ABAX. They have opened doors beyond anything we could have imagined. I have found that they always seek to add value. As such, I am delighted to be their client.

ABAX has been very helpful to our establishment in Mauritius. We pride ourselves on doing everything to the highest level of governance and compliance in every jurisdiction in which we operate. We found ABAX to be a very effective partner. They were our first choice as partner because from the outset their team understood our requirements. As we ramp up our presence in Mauritius, we expect to rely further on their knowledge and advice.

We chose ABAX in setting up as an Investment Advisor and for our investment vehicle because they are bilingual and have the required skills and experience to support us in our strategy to build the right bridge between investors and opportunities in the short, medium and long term. ABAX has really added value at each and every stage of our investment strategy for Africa. Built on worldwide best practices, the ABAX expertise is helping us achieve our business goals the right way.

We are extremely happy we engaged ABAX to assist us in the setting up of the Fund. They have an impressive and in-depth knowledge of setting up of funds, administration, compliance and legal matters. The broad skills within ABAX have helped to identify key issues early in the process and added significant value to Ecobank.

We chose Mauritius as a place to set up a company, having looked at Mombasa and Dar-es-Salaam as options, because the bulk of our customers are in Africa. There are about 24 different African countries that we supply to. But the facilities and the infrastructure both in Mombasa and Dar-es-Salaam did not compare with Mauritius. We were looking for a city which is a port city. Currently based in Johannesburg, it’s about a week to ten days of import and export that we lose because of the road freight from the Durban port to the Johannesburg port. So we needed a port city and those two did not compare as favorably as Mauritius.

When you think about where Mauritius is positioned and what it has been doing as an international financial center, it’s one of the best leap frogs into Africa.

Brian Herlihy

Executive Director


Mauritius has a proven track record as an international financial centre as it has been the main route for FDI into India over the past 15 years and is emerging as the financial centre of reference for Africa for funds and other investment vehicles, on the strength of its business friendly environment and legislation.

Mauritius provides a transparent and well regulated environment for the international investor. Mauritius’ regulations, through the Financial Services Commission, actually provide assurance to our investors, that our activities are properly managed and regulated.
