Mauritius-based independent compliance consulting firm, Abler has launched its operations in UAE to help clients to navigate their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT) compliance journey in light of international regulatory challenges.

Established in 2017, Abler has supported companies in understanding and meeting their compliance obligations for the past five years in Mauritius, Africa, and the United Kingdom.

The company offers a wide and comprehensive range of services, such as outsourced compliance services, annual compliance assessment, compliance advisory, crypto compliance, trainings, RegTech solutions, and so on.

Able currently boasts a team of seasoned ex-regulators, investigative officers, lawyers, fintech experts, and compliance professionals who aim to build a resilient compliance culture.

Speaking about the launch of the company’s operations in the UAE, Ms. Shahannah Abdoolakhan, Founder and CEO, said that, “Based on our successful track record in Mauritius, which has become recognized internationally for its high compliance standards, we see the potential for building bridges between the reputed International Financial Centres of Mauritius and the UAE. We look forward to supporting the collaboration which has developed between the authorities in these two jurisdictions in recent months.”

“At a time when the industry worldwide is facing significant AML/CFT challenges, we are delighted to be expanding our operations to the UAE, where we will act as a one-stop boutique firm to help clients meet their AML/CFT obligations and to contribute to their continued business growth and success, in the same way, we have done for our clients in Mauritius, the United Kingdom, and Africa,” Ms. Abdoolakhan further added.
