Corporate Status and Objects

In 2001, the Mauritius Bankers Association (MBA) changed its status to that of a company and was thus incorporated under the Companies Act as a non-profit making public company, limited by guarantee. Following the coming into effect of a new Banking Act, in 2004, which provides for a single banking licence, all offshore banks joined the MBA as from September 2005.
