Mauritius Securities License
The Republic of Mauritius is a sovereign island nation located in the Indian Ocean and a member of the British Commonwealth. The island is a parliamentary democracy with a strong constitution and stable government. English is commonly spoken on the Island and the United States Dollar is widely accepted. The economy of Mauritius is driven by its status as an international financial services hub.
Under the Financial Services Development Act of 2001, the government of Mauritius established the nation as a global financial services powerhouse recognized by sophisticated financial professionals the world over. Mauritius hosts over 300 licensed financial institutions. The nation offers a competitive tax rate of 3% and zero percent on capital gains for corporations operating offshore. Moreover, the nation has significant impediments to the registration of foreign judgments making it suitable for asset protection purposes.
Mauritius is an ideal location for promoters of Securities businesses. Mauritius offers an Investment Advisor which covers all related Securities activity, including acting as a broker of equity and debt securities – including United States listed equities. The licensure is recognized world-wide and many top international Securities broker-dealers are licensed in Mauritius. In addition, the process of obtaining a license is both cost effective and can be accomplished quickly.
Advantages of a Mauritius Securities License
In recent years, increasingly complex regulation and an erosion of financial privacy rights in major financial centers such as the United States and United Kingdom have started to drive securities trading offshore. In fact, each day billions are traded in non-traditional, offshore securities exchanges which tend to offer favorable price discovery, comparable volume and lower trading fees. Established offshore financial markets such as Mauritius offer financial service providers with a unique opportunity to participate in the burgeoning offshore securities industry.
