Strategically located in the Indian Ocean at the crossroad of international investments, Mauritius has throughout the last decade forged a strong reputation as a premier International Financial Centre. Mauritius has positioned itself as an ideal investment conduit, whereby its skilled workforce, robust and stable regulatory framework among other advantages make it an International Financial Centre of choice, geared towards providing high-end financial services and investment structures regionally and globally.
Mauritius is becoming a second home for South Africans and international corporates looking for a springboard to Africa. The island is becoming a jurisdiction of choice for South African property investors seeking to diversify their investment portfolios, and on the other hand buyers who are looking to acquire residency.
Axis has a Country Representative Officer in South Africa, a key strategic appointment to tap into new opportunities across the African continent while enhancing the AXIS brand and its market-leading capabilities to a diversified client base.
“Our decision to appoint a representative officer in South Africa reflects the strong belief we have in Africa. With the surge of opportunities in Africa, there’s no doubt that South Africa remains a major economic powerhouse. Our regional expansion to South Africa shows our drive to capitalise on the growth areas, positioning Mauritius as the jurisdiction of choice for routing investment into Africa,” – Assad Abdullatiff, Managing Director of AXIS Fiduciary Limited.
This newly South African recruitment confirms the established strategy and aspiration of AXIS to be the leading fiduciary firm in the region with a one-stop-shop solution for clients, while simultaneously promoting Mauritius as an International Financial Centre of choice.
