Our organisation at a glance

Incorporated in 1838, the Mauritius Commercial Bank (MCB) is the leading banking institution in Mauritius while being an increasingly prominent financial services player in the region. Throughout its rich history, the Bank has been true to its guiding principle of assisting in the advancement of individuals, corporates and the country at large. Alongside playing a pivotal role in the socio-economic development of the country, the Group has been pursuing a sensible diversification strategy backed by its sound business model.

MCB initiated its expansion beyond local shores in the early 1990s and its representation abroad now spans 8 countries, namely Madagascar, Seychelles, Mozambique and Maldives through dedicated subsidiaries as well as Réunion Island, Mayotte, France and South Africa through its associate and representative offices.

In parallel, the Group’s value proposition has, over time, been enriched by the provision of non-bank services. MCB is today an integrated financial group offering a wide range of products and services, including retail and business/corporate banking, global business, factoring, leasing, and various investor-related solutions.

The Bank is heavily involved in promoting the welfare of the society. It does so via (i) MCB Forward Foundation which manages the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities of the Bank, and (ii) the ‘Initiative 175’ programme which fosters environment-friendly practices through a wide range of activities. It has, since May 2012, adopted the Equator Principles which stand as a governing policy of the Bank’s Environment and Social Policy.

Testifying to its consistent achievements, MCB was proclaimed ‘Bank of the Year’ for Mauritius by The Banker four times in the last six years.

Group restructuring

Anchored on its sound business model and solid financial fundamentals, MCB is well positioned to pursue its diversification strategy towards becoming a key financial services player in the region. In order to better support its growth ambitions, the Group has embarked on a restructuring exercise which will separate its Banking and Non-Banking operations.
