Bank One voted Best SME Bank in Mauritius

Bank One is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the title of “Best SME Bank Mauritius 2022” at the inaugural edition of the SME Bank Awards by Global Finance.


SMEs were hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic, and will play a critical role in any country’s recovery,” says Joseph Giarraputo, Global Finance’s publisher and editorial director. “Global Finance has launched its new SME Bank Awards Program in recognition of this fact. It is a unique and important time to give the financial institutions that best serve SMEs the opportunity to be honoured for the services and support they provide.


Global Finance’s awards and recognition programs are the trusted standard of excellence for banks and their corporate partners. They are backed by a 35-year history of editorial accuracy and integrity. The editors selected the winners for the 2022 Best SME Bank Awards based on entries submitted by banks and independent research, with input from industry insiders, executives, and technology experts. Global Finance also used a proprietary algorithm with criteria – such as knowledge of SME markets and needs, breadth of products and services, market standing, and innovation – weighted for relative importance.


SMEs are present in all areas of activity and they contribute enormously to our local economy. Today, more than ever, they need reliable partners by their side, particularly with the numerous challenges they have been facing since the beginning of the pandemic, particularly an increase in operating costs, trouble maintaining steady cash flow and protecting jobs. I am proud that Bank One SME Banking is today rewarded with this title. I thank our clients for their trust and my team for their efforts in understanding the “new” needs of SMEs” says Sunil Sathebajee, Head of Business and SME Banking.

Our interest rates are among the most competitive on the market and our offerings include leasing, short and long term loans, working capital and trade finance facilities and bank guarantees, among others.
