Ana Balat Limited (Mauritius) is an FSC Regulated Investment Adviser (Unrestricted) based in Port Louis in Mauritius. The firm is specialised in alternative investments in the Afro-Eurasian markets.

The financial services industry in Mauritius attracts investors active from across the globe. Mauritius, crucially situated at the heart of the region in the Indian Ocean, has become a gateway for inbound and outbound investments for the Afro-Eurasian regions, with a significant portion of FDI into these markets structured through Mauritian investment vehicles. Investors favour Mauritius as a jurisdiction for commercial reasons, including the high quality of the legal and regulatory framework, economic and political stability, a multi-lingual French-English speaking workforce, a wide network of Double Tax Agreements, and membership of COMESA. In 2002 Mauritius enacted the Financial Intelligence and Anti-Money Laundering Act (FIAMLA), the Prevention of Corruption Act (POCA), and the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA). The jurisdiction is fully compliant with the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) and Common Reporting Standards (CRS).
