Unity in Partnership: Enabling Sustainable & Inclusive Investment,” the carefully selected theme for the Africa Partnership Conference, encapsulates our firm conviction in the transformative power of collective action.
This theme resonates with the conference’s objective to catalyze cross-boundary collaboration and harmonious interactions among a diverse array of stakeholders.
With an emphasis on unity as the keystone of sustainable action and shared commitments, this theme charts a course for nurturing strategic partnerships. These partnerships, in turn, will serve as the driving force behind Africa’s journey towards an inclusive future defined by sustainable growth, innovation, and collective prosperity.

With its 184-year history, MCB Group has evolved from a bank into an integrated bank and financial services provider, offering tailored and innovative solutions to a diversified client base, ranging from retail to corporates and institutions. Alongside consolidating its leading banking position in Mauritius, the Group has diversified its activities into the non-banking field, providing investor-related, leasing and factoring services.
MCB Group is currently ranked 1st in East Africa and 18th in Africa in terms of Tier 1 capital as per The Banker Top 1000 World Banks, July 2022. The Group is investment grade-rated by Moody’s and currently ranks 30th in Africa in terms of assets (Jeune Afrique Top 200 Banks, The Africa Report, October 2022).
The Group has also established a physical presence in 10 countries overseas, via its subsidiaries in Madagascar, Seychelles and Maldives, its representative offices in Johannesburg, Nairobi, Paris and advisory office in Dubai, as well as its associates, Société Générale Moçambique and Banque Française Commerciale Océan Indien (BFCOI – operating in Réunion Island, Mayotte and Paris). MCB Group is actively involved in sub-Saharan Africa through the financing of major cross-border transactions and its ‘Bank of Banks’ axis, which aims at positioning it as a regional hub for handling trade finance, payment solutions and consulting services linked to project management and high-end IT solutions.
Conscious of its stature locally and in the region and the role it can play as a positive agent of change, MCB Group has, in 2018, adopted “Success Beyond Numbers” as its ’raison d’être’ , in order to step up its sustainable development initiatives. Same are based on boosting the local economy of Mauritius through entrepreneurship, fostering and preserving the environmental and cultural heritage of the country and the individual and collective wellbeing of Mauritians.
IBL is a proudly born and raised Mauritian group. With a Mauritian heart, a strong regional presence and world-class expertise, the diversified conglomerate works and invests in 9 sectors in over 300 companies based in 23 countries worldwide.
After opening an office in Nairobi, Kenya in 2018, IBL has developed solid business relationships in Africa and now draws on its expertise to become a strategic investor on the continent.
In 2021, the Mauritian group strengthened its regional expansion with the “IBL Beyond Borders” strategy. Since then, IBL has made significant strides in executing its development with majority stakes in particular in retail, health and energy, mainly in East Africa.
As a responsible corporate citizen, IBL’s vision is to create a brighter future for all.
