At AfrAsia Bank, we have a comprehensive suite of financial solutions, but what’s even more valuable is how our passionate team tailors solutions to unlock the full potential of your wealth and help you achieve your financial aspirations. Here are some of the ways we’ve helped our clients.

Daryl Rivet, Commercial & Channel Manager Symantec Indian Ocean Island
"I have been using the XtraMiles online portal of AfrAsia Bank just a few days after the official launch in December. I was really impressed with the user-friendliness of the portal and its tremendous search capacity of finding an air ticket on whichever airline or even a hotel around the globe just in seconds. It actually took me just a few seconds to find a hotel matching my criteria in London and with only 2 clicks I have been able to complete the booking with the XtraMiles on my account and my confirmed reservation was sent to me instantly. I personally think that this new program launched by AfrAsia Bank give us as client an unlimited number of ways to enjoy our card rewards."
Ben Lim, Chief Executive Officer, Intercontinental Trust
"AfrAsia Bank has positioned itself as a regional player facilitating investment flows and trade traffic between Africa and Asia and globally. The Bank has cross-border capabilities to deliver tailor made solutions with tangible benefits. AfrAsia Bank has been by our side as we have grown over the years and we are impressed by the dynamism and passion of the team in offering a seamless service to international clients."
Preetam Prayag, Chief Executive Officer, Imara Trust Company (Mauritius) Limited
"The AfrAsia Global Business Team has always been responsive to our needs and the Bank is the most competitive one in terms of global business bank charges. I really appreciate that the AfrAsia Bank Executives are always readily available and actively participate in the on-going relationship. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone investing or trading in Africa and considering the appointment of a partner bank."
J.P. Harrop, Group Head of Sales, Augentius Fund Administration LLP
"We spent a lot of time reviewing the marketplace for a banker in Mauritius. We wanted a specialist who understands Private Equity and a group who could cover multiple jurisdictions including Africa and Asia. AfrAsia Bank demonstrated a great depth of knowledge on the nuances of all our domiciles of interest. We find that two years into the relationship a good mutual understanding has developed between our two firms. I am always happy to recommend them to Private Equity Funds based on our positive experience."
Stephen Murphy, Managing Director, Citadel Capital (Cairo, Egypt)
"We chose AfrAsia Bank because they are very entrepreneurial. They are a boutique bank, supported by strong shareholders, including PROPARCO. We have been particularly pleased with the way the Team adapts and responds to our needs."
Etienne Viard, PROPARCO's CEO
"PROPARCO supports AfrAsia's strategic vision of Mauritius as a value-adding platform for Africa-Asia financial flows, in line with the idea of development of the South-South trade fostered by the AFD Group."
Councillor Logie Naidoo, Deputy Mayor of Durban (South Africa)
"Our business community can only benefit from a new alternative to smart and sophisticated banking by looking at AfrAsia Bank's developed regional outreach and repositioning itself to facilitate cross-border trade and investment flows into Africa and Asia."
Ian WS Kilbride, Chairman and Chief Executive of The Warwick Group
"I have been very impressed by AfrAsia Corporate Finance (ACF) and the professionalism that you showed... I am actually even more excited about the future opportunities now we have a young dynamic and professional team that we can utilise and seek advice from. Your style is a refreshing reminder that South Africa does still produce top quality people who are smart and able to see opportunity, rather than just reasons as to why deals should not be done! Thanks again for your attention to detail and I look forward to working with you on many other projects in 2011."
Chrystel De Bricourt, Director at Oazure Ltd
"Je suis très satisfaite de notre collaboration avec AfrAsia. La grande disponibilité de nos chargés de compte, leur qualité d'écoute, leur réactivité, et leur sérieux sont toujours au rendez vous et rendent les opérations fluides et rapides. Les services de la banque aussi, sont particulièrement qualitatifs et nous permettent d’évoluer rapidement en toute confiance. Une mention particulière pour le Homebanking qui correspond à ce qu’un client "d'aujourd’hui" peut en attendre : gagner du temps. Pour toutes ces raisons, je ne peux qu’encourager mon entourage à tenter l’expérience AfrAsia pour mesurer la différence !"
Ashok D. Jusrut, Executive Chairman at Jusrut Group of Companies
"One of the reasons we moved to AfrAsia Bank is the degree of responsiveness they have when it comes to decision-making. They have a deep and comprehensive knowledge of not only our business but also the dynamics of the sector that we operate in. Moreover, since the bank is locally owned, we have immediate access to their team of talented business specialists. Their tailor made banking solutions have really helped our business to grow."
Ahmed Parkar, Chief Executive Director at Star Knitwear Group
"AfrAsia Bank is an important institution for our company as it offers financial support including international trade (currency transactions) discounting facilities and loan facilities. Their can-do attitude is omnipresent be it from their CEO, Corporate Directors to their Relationship Managers. They are always available, supportive, listening to the clients' needs and doing their best to find THE solution. I believe it is this important attitude that is required to build long term relationships. The Bank is a one stop shop for all my banking needs with professional staff who are efficient and decisions are made fast. As a business this is vital. I feel at home. Thanks guys for the best rate on currencies in the market and for making my business run smoothly!"
