Heimdall can provide a one-stop shop solution for your multinational group. While we are currently mainly focused on Mauritius for our products and services, we are able to leverage off relationships with service providers to assist you in nearly any jurisdiction where you intend to operate.
The company structure for African focused multinational groups
Mauritius serves as the ideal location to conduct business operations across multiple jurisdictions in Africa. The company is constituted under the company laws of Mauritius, with principal place of business situated in Mauritius. It is registered as an operational company, while it also possible for shares to be owned wholly or in part by an international trust.
The management team
The company is managed by a board of directors which can consist of your nominees and a minimum of two resident directors in Mauritius. It is important to note that the majority of directors need to be resident in Mauritius. Heimdall can supply two or more resident directors from our highly qualified and experienced team for this purpose.
Heimdall’s directors, personnel and consultants have served on the boards of multinational groups for many years and through multiple economic cycles. Our aim is to add real value to boards and board committees on as many levels as possible through our knowledge, experience and networks.
In addition, Heimdall can provide executives at different levels of seniority to assist with the in-country execution of your business objectives. This can be done from our internal team or we can assist in sourcing personnel through licenced service providers.
Please refer to our Team section on our website for more information about our personnel:
