ENL Group (www.enl.mu )
The ENL Group is one of the largest conglomerates in Mauritius. Interests include controlling stakes in ENL Land which owns agricultural estates in the Moka region and down South, in Savannah as well as 50% of Rogers Consolidated Shareholding Ltd which in turn holds 54% of the Rogers Group. ENL is also a major shareholder of the Food & Allied Group and has a significant stake in New Mauritius Hotels. It also owns and manages a number of commercial and light manufacturing operations including Axess, Grewals, Plastinax, Pack Plastic, Cogir and Rennel, franchisee of FedEx in Mauritius.
In recent years, ENL has strengthened its property development and management division which was started more than ten years ago with Espral. The group is currently engaged in several developing high profile residential, commercial and business facilities across the island. It now owns 40% of Villas Valriche, a luxury IRS development it initiated in Bel Ombre a few years ago. La Balise Marina on the west coast is another pioneering concept for luxury lifestyle initiated by ENL. But the iconic development undertaken by the group is no doubt the Bagatelle integrated project which is one of the largest shopping and lifestyle facility built this side of the Indian Ocean to date.
Frontier expertise is rooted in Investec history. Started as a small leasing company in South Africa in 1974 and using the distinctively marked, independently minded zebra as an emblem, Investec (comprising Investec PLC and Investec Limited) was founded in Johannesburg, South Africa, during a time of major transition. Investec acquired a banking licence in 1980 and was listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), South Africa, in 1986. In July 2002, Investec became the first South African group to list in London and Johannesburg by implementing the Dual Listed Companies (DLC) structure.
Today Investec is an international specialist banking group, employing 6,196 people world-wide, which provides a diverse range of financial products and services to a niche client base in three principal markets: the United Kingdom, South Africa and Australia, as well as many other geographies including Mauritius.
Investec Bank (Mauritius) Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Investec Group, was established in 1997. Initially the Bank focused on concluding structured finance transaction, primarily for its South African client base. It has since expanded its banking business to cover a wider range of products, including property finance into most of the geographical regions where the Group has a footprint.
