ABOUT ABC BANKING

With its Headquarters and banking operations all based at its prestigious WEAL HOUSE, strategically located in the heart of the island’s capital at Place d’Armes, Port- Louis, ABC Banking Corporation Ltd continues its steady ascending course and stands as a well-established bank, highly respected for its excellent reputation, its strict integrity, and top quality of its products & services.

The bank is organised on four main pillars being: Retail & Corporate Banking, Private Banking, International Banking and Treasury. To run the business and deliver its products & services successfully, the bank is equipped with a highly motivated and committed team of experienced professionals and competent staff, led by a talented, innovative and supportive management, in turn guided by a wise and experienced, well informed, prudent, and cohesive Board of Directors. Starting in December 2010 with a portfolio of MUR 2.0 billion of Term Deposits, a legacy of its original status as a Finance & Leasing Company, ABC Banking Corporation has the great merit of having built up after seven and a half years of operations as a bank, a Deposit base totalling MUR 15.0 billion while the total of its Shareholders’ Equity has moved during that period from MUR 225 million to MUR 1.5 billion.

A major milestone was achieved in January 2016 when the bank opened its shareholding to the public and was listed on the Development and Enterprise Market (DEM) of the Stock Exchange of Mauritius (SEM).

The bank ranks among DEM listed companies whose share prices have achieved significant percentage increases since listing. In March 2018, the bank was honoured by the election of its Managing Director, Professor Donald Ah-Chuen, as President of the SEM.

Following its rapid growth, successful performance and steady progress, ABC Banking Corporation Ltd has been receiving prestigious trophies during the past few years. In 2014, the bank obtained the “Best Private Bank in Mauritius” award in the category of offshore services, for the second consecutive year from Euromoney Magazine. It also won in 2014 and 2015 the prize of ”Best Bank for International Banking Services Mauritius” awarded by Global Banking & Financing Review. Three distinctions came successively in 2015, 2016 and 2017 from Capital Finance International (CFI.co) Magazine recognising the bank as one of Africa’s top performing financial services providers with the award of “Best International Bank Indian Ocean”. ABC Banking Corporation Ltd also won the “Fastest Growing Banking Brand, Mauritius” for the year 2016 by the Global Brands Magazine. This year, the bank is once again honoured with an award by the CFI Magazine, with the accolade of “Most Innovative & Fastest Growing International Bank in the Indian Ocean 2018”, which is a fitting recognition of the hard work achieved by everyone at the bank.
