Family offices and wealth management: A strategic outlook from Mauritius


In today’s fast-paced and uncertain global economy, ultra-wealthy families face unique challenges in managing and preserving their assets and fortunes. To navigate this complex landscape successfully, many affluent families turn to Family Offices – exclusive entities entrusted with the thorough management of their financial affairs. In this insightful article, we explore the changing role and functions of Family Offices, with a specific emphasis on harnessing the advantages of the Mauritius jurisdiction and the expertise of Rogers Capital Fiduciary to maximise financial potential and philanthropic endeavours.

The evolving role of Family Offices

Family Offices have significantly transformed and evolved over the years, shifting from basic investment management entities to becoming dynamic and multifaceted centres of wealth management. Today, they play a crucial role in orchestrating the financial strategy of ultra-wealthy families, extending their services beyond traditional wealth preservation to incorporate the different aspects of their clients’ lives.

Conventionally, Family Offices would primarily handle investment management and asset allocation. However, as the financial ecosystem became more complex and global, their responsibilities expanded to encompass tax planning, risk management, estate planning, and philanthropy. These offices now act as strategic partners, harmonising financial objectives with the values and long-term goals of the family.

The advantage of Mauritius jurisdiction

Mauritius has emerged and remains a premier global financial centre, attracting high-net-worth individuals and families seeking a secure and conducive environment for wealth management. The island nation’s reputation is founded on a robust legal and regulatory framework, a stable political climate, and an attractive tax regime.

One of Mauritius’ most compelling advantages is its extensive network of Double Taxation Avoidance Agreements (DTAAs) with numerous countries. These agreements ensure that families can optimise their tax planning, minimise tax burdens, and facilitate efficient cross-border investments. Consequently, Mauritius has become a gateway for international investment, allowing families to diversify their portfolios while maintaining a tax-efficient structure.

Moreover, Mauritius offers an array of financial services, including investment funds, trusts, and fiduciary services, all of which contribute to its cache as a thriving hub for wealth management activities.
