Data is key to sound decision-making processes. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a comprehensive and online database on Mauritian firms which can meet the needs of business people, researchers and policy-makers. To fulfill such a pressing need, Dr. I.Ramlall founded and developed Corporate Data Analytics Mauritius. Dr. I. Ramlall has more than 15 years of experience, both as a professional (banker, fund manager and central banker) and as an academic, in the field of Economics and Finance. Researchers and policy-makers can now easily have access to data on firms at various levels-whether for banks, non-financial companies, listed firms or non-listed firms.
