On Thursday 11th August 2022, our property expert and Head of International Sales for Mauritius, Anna Swiecka, visited the Fine & Country Head Office in Mayfair, London to meet with prospective investors for this beautiful paradise.
Nestled in the heart of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a true tropical haven, Anna describes it as; "the perfect place to live, work, invest and relax. The island encapsulates a safe destination for entrepreneurs, retirees, families or any individual with or without children. A remarkable destination to call home for those with a discerning taste."
Mauritius has a population estimated at about 1.3 million and has a convenient time zone for doing business (GMT +4). Anna tells us that the island is; "perfect for year-round living, as it offers dry and pleasant winters from May to October and warm and humid summers from November to April. English and French are major languages here, while Kreol is the native tongue. There is a well-established network of private international schools, from kindergartens to universities, with educational programmes in both English and French as well as easy access to local banks (MCB, SBM, MauBank, Afrasia) and international banks (Absa, HSBC, Baroda Bank, SBI). The local unit currency is the Mauritian Rupee. US dollars, Euros, YEN, RAND, Swiss Francs, GBP can be exchanged."
We asked Anna how the investor event in Park Lane went and she commented; "We have arranged private meetings with interested parties to explain our portfolios and fully understand the needs of the clients. We emphasize on a personal approach toward our clientele. With the investment virility options, we attract a different type of clients. From the entry-level investors up to premium buyers and diversity from different regions/ continents and demographics."

"If I could give a potential investor one tip it would be to know that it is completely safe to invest in Mauritius," says Anna, "especially since all transactions need to go via EDB- which is a government organization. Now is a great time to invest. With the current situation in Europe and pandemic experience, surely to diversify towards different region property portfolios is a great move forward. This is one of the reasons we are getting such a big interest from all around the world."
