Appleby Hunter Bailhache has lauched an office in Mauritius, the firm’s fifth offshore location.
The two-partner outpost is expected to focus primarily on African and Asian-focused funds, with India a particular target.
Mauritius, a member of the WTO, the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC), is also party to a number of double taxation agreements.
The office will open for business in February with Mauritian partner Gilbert Noel and Malcolm Moller, who is transferring from Appleby’s Bermuda office. It will also include two associates plus support staff.
Appleby already has offices in four of the world’s leading offshore business centres; Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands and Jersey, as well as offices in London and Hong Kong.
