With the objective of enhancing the competitiveness of the financial services sector and diversifying the product base of the Mauritian IFC, the Budget Speech 2020-2021 introduced the Variable Capital Companies ("VCC").

The Financial Services Commission ("FSC") is issuing a draft bill open to public consultation aimed at providing a legal framework for the incorporation, conversion, structure, operation and termination of a VCC.

Comments and suggestions on the VCC bill can be communicated by email to vccteam@fscmauritius.org by 19 October 2021. The draft VCC bill may be subject to review once the consultation exercise is completed.

The draft VCC bill is accessible HERE.
