24th September 2013 – The Private Equity conference was held in Mauritius by the Board of Investment on the 12 and 13 September.

Marc Hein and Nicolas Richard attended the conference which was rated as very successful. The main theme was using Mauritius as a platform to invest in Africa whilst explaining all the laws made available to the international investor within the Mauritian Jurisdiction.

Mauritius, as an International Financial Centre, is now closely linked to the development of Africa and hence the need for proper legal advice to all stakeholders using the Mauritian jurisdiction. Various corporate vehicles may be used in Mauritius including a company, trust, foundation, protected cell company or limited partnership.
