With a Mauritius Asset Management license you will be able to manage securities based assets and non-securities based assets for your customers:
For reference, the definition of securities is as follows: “Securities” means -
Shares or stocks in the share capital of a company, whether incorporated in Mauritius or elsewhere, other than a collective investment scheme
Debentures, debenture stock, loan stock, bonds, convertible bonds or other similar instruments
Rights warrants, options or interests in respect of securities mentioned in paragraphs (1) and (2)
treasury bills, loan stock, bonds and other instruments creating or acknowledging indebtedness and issued by or on behalf of or guaranteed by the Government of the Republic of Mauritius or the government of another country, a local authority or public authority, as may be prescribed
shares in, securities of, or rights to participate in, a collective investment scheme
depository receipts or similar instruments; (7) options, futures, forwards and other derivatives whether on securities or commodities; (8) any other transferable securities, interests or assets as may be approved by the Commission; For the management of any other type of asset, the FSC will consider on a case-to-case basis
The definition of "dealing in securities" includes a requirement of an intention to make a profit. As a result, foreign exchange transactions that are intended to make a profit for the client (as opposed to simple money exchange) fall within the definition of "dealing in securities" and licenses are required to carry on that business.
The Mauritius GBC1 is set up under the Companies Act 2001 and licensed under the Financial Services Act 2007 - so a 3% tax will apply to your business what is very low compared to Asset Management entities to be registered in Europe or South East Asia.
A Mauritius GBC1 is considered as a Mauritius tax resident company (and therefore have access to the double tax treaties of Mauritius) if its management and control is exercised from Mauritius (what we will arrange in our setup package).
Depending on the business model and the instruments you are going to trade as asset manager the securities deposit will be considered on a case by case check. It can range from minimum 0.00 USD to a maximum of 30,000 USD. More than 30k are not be required. The funds for capital requirements are of course not included to our full setup price.
An Asset Management company without bank accounts is useless - just a licensed company without payment facilities won't bring you success.
We can guarantee the opening of full SWIFT bank accounts in the name of your Mauritius Asset Management company with the real big players in the islands. Multi Currency Accounts, online banking, digi pass security and debit cards to pay directly business expenses are standard.
The accounts can be used to receive customers funds / deposits directly.
