The wealthiest people in the world are always listed in the Forbes magazine but what about Mauritius? Does anyone know who the richest person here is?

Whether it's a Mauritian or foreigner who has settled here, if you have a name, please share it with us.

I swear it's not me. Usually the CIA- and I suppose Forbes don't list people whose wealth is of obscure or opaque origin. I think most of our very wealthy would be in trouble if their businesses were subjected to a severe auditing [by non-Mauritians, need I say]

It's generally accepted that there are five richest families who hold the mauritian economy, namely

Lagesse
Harel
Dalais
Espitalier Noel
Currimjee.

However, others have undoubtedly climbed the hierarchy in the last 15-20 years. Gujadhur, Ramdanee, Rawat or even Jugnauth. As for the wealthiest person, I guess it must be Thierry Lagesse.

Hmm, illegal activities seem to be on the rise these days ;)

I don't think this information will be revealed because there are too many thieves in Mauritius waiting for opportunities like this.

However I think that the richest people here are foreigners (could be south africans) who own large estates on our island including big businesses and 5 star hotels.

Hmm.. Publicly available info will be publicly available to MRA, No tax audit required.. ;-)

Joked apart, I know NOT much.. but I guess the guys from BAI are the richest as they are Business Tycoons.

May be wrong but I am sure it hurts no one..

no,your all wrong,except for the ones who cited Lagesse.There are 5 main(richest) families in Mauritius.Its the Harel,Lagesse,Rogers,Gadjadhur,and the last i forgot.but Rawat and so on aren't in it.so just imagine the fortune of these 5 families.:)

gices Level 6

Can you back up your claim by citing the source where you got that information from?

A
Ax1 Level 1

In fact, you can see this in the annual business magazine(it give all great businesses of mauritius,in order..from the most profitable and so on.and also its well known...for the lagesse its the Mon loisir group...and naturally they are all of them shareholders in all major companies of mauriitus.

The richest Mauritian is Dawood Rawat and he lives in Bahamas and Mauritius. He is the majority shareholder for the British American Insurance and have shares in all the major group in Mauritius. 2nd is a Liz Quindron who lives in flic en flac and who made her fortune by stealing in the UK.

Correct spelling is Lise Coindreau. Her fortune is based on real estate. It started small [here in Mauritius, not in UK] and its rapid expansion is attributed to her remarkable business acumen.
She is the most successful businesswoman and probably the richest woman in Mauritius, but in general ranking she is far lower than 2nd.

That's interesting. Can you cite the source where you got that information from? Also I couldn't get any information on Liz Quindron when Googling her name.

Jaulim and Currimjee were rich in the past..maybe the richest at that time. but their fortune has come to a stand still. they still do have a lot of money but nowadays lagesse, maurel, espitalier noel, kalachand, rawat all sit at the top

would be persons owning private family enterprises like the Lagesse and Rivalland. But since NMH is one of the biggest hotel enterprise we have, it could be Herbert Couacau. He is also at the seat of several Board.

I'm not familiar with the name Rivalland, would you mind giving some background info? thanks

people financing political parties are the richest... such as currimjee. When you light on your house they get money, not the CEB. PoLiTiCs!

Isn't it unfair? Those colonials came in first and their blood relatives still own a large portion of Mauritius. Pfft..They don't require education. They've got it all from birth..A serious advantage. Should we Mauritius amend colonial law? I mean Mauritius has been independent since 78, and all Mauritians are as Mauritian as any other Mauritian. How can they still own??

The director of phoenix Bev and Swan are Rivalland brothers. Former Senior adviser to the PM was their dad. I don't think they are that wealthy. The two brothers are paid directors in the IBL group whose main shareholders with voting power are the Lagesse

It could well be the Lagesse family. It's just a hunch though, don't take my word for it.
