Bank of Mauritius
||The Bank of Mauritius is the central bank of the Republic of Mauritius. It was established in September 1967 as the central bank of Mauritius. It was modelled on the Bank of England and was, in effect, set up with the assistance of senior officers of the Bank of England. Amongst its responsibilities is the issuance of the Mauritian currency, the Mauritian rupee.
Barclays Bank Mauritius
||An ancestor of Barclays Bank, National Bank of South Africa, first entered Mauritius in 1919. Since then, Barclays Bank Mauritius has grown to be the third largest bank in Mauritius, after Mauritius Commercial Bank and State Bank of Mauritius, with 20 branches and a market share of about 10-12%. In 2002, Barclays Bank Mauritius bought Banque Nationale de Paris Intercontinentale (BNPI). This acquisition brought with it 6 branches to add to Barclays' existing 13 branches.
Mauritius Commercial Bank
||Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB) is the oldest and largest banking institution of Mauritius. It is also the oldest banking institution south of the Sahara and one of the oldest banks of the Commonwealth to have preserved its original name. The MCB is the only Mauritian bank to be among The Banker's list of 'THE TOP 1000 WORLD BANKS 2006.
State Bank of Mauritius
||State Bank of Mauritius (SBM) is the second largest bank in Mauritius with a market share of about 25% of domestic banking assets.
The government of Mauritius established State Bank of Mauritius in 1973 under the name State Commercial Bank. In 1994, SBM opened its first overseas branch in Mumbai. Then in 1997 the South African bank Nedcor acquired 20.1% of SBM’s voting equity. That same year SBM opened its second branch in India in Chennai, and the next year one in Hyderabad. In 1999 SBM and Nedcore established SBM Nedcore International (SNI) as a 50:50 joint venture to engage in offshore banking, and SNI started operations in 2000. In order to avoid any conflict of interest with SBI International, Mauritius (formerly State Bank International), another joint venture offshore company between SBM and State Bank of India, SBM disinvested its 49 percent equity holding in SBI International. In 2005, Nedcor sold back to SBM its 20.1% in the latter, and at the same time took over 100% ownership of SNI. Then Nedcor announced the sale of SNI to Sasfin, which will rename the bank Sasfin Bank International (SBI).
