Opus Fund Services opens Mauritius Office
Opus Fund Services has opened a new office in Mauritius, Opus Fund Services (Mauritius) Ltd, further extending its global expansion to meet the 24/7 coverage needs of its increasingly diverse and growing client base. It plans to employ over 50 people in the next two years to help support its global growth.
“Opening in Mauritius is an important strategic step in our SaaS enabled 'follow the sun' global operating model. We have enjoyed significant growth in our client base over the last 3 years and the addition of Mauritius to our global office footprint will allow expedited delivery of our services”, says Robin Bedford, Opus Global CEO.
Mauritius has built a solid reputation as a secure and reliable financial center. Its politically stable and business friendly eco-center has attracted many global financial businesses as well as institutional investors. The financial services sector is a major employer, with multiple global administrators having a presence on the island. It ranks first in Africa for quality of life, according to Mercer’s international survey.
Mark Atkinson, Opus Regional COO, adds: “We are delighted to launch our Mauritius operation which is being established as a back-office servicing arm covering hedge fund and private equity administration, portfolio accounting and valuation, shareholder servicing, accounting, audit and tax services. The highly educated and experienced workforce were key factors in our decision to choose Mauritius as our newest operating location.”
