MAURITIUS

Mauritius originally became popular as fund domicile for funds investing into India. More recently its’ IPPA’s with African countries, its strategic position and political stability, amongst other factors, have made Mauritius a popular domicile for funds targeting African investments and we have seen a substantial increase in the use of this jurisdiction in recent years. Funds are primarily governed by The Securities Act 2005 and The Securities (Collective Investment Schemes and Close‐ended Funds) Regulations 2008 (the “Regulations”). The Limited Partnership Act 2011 provides for Private Equity and Real Estate funds to be structured as Limited Partnerships and for investors to take advantage of the tax transparency rules.

Private Equity funds normally take the form of Limited Partnerships licensed as a closed-end-funds under the Securities Act 2005 and the Securities (Collective Investment Schemes and Closed-end Funds) Regulations 2008.
