Securities Services

Bank One responds to today’s challenges with bespoke securities services designed to cover all the activities of the banking value chain.

With our on-the-ground presence in Africa, a robust custodian network that extends over 50 countries, and Euroclear as our main depository, all our clients— individuals, external asset managers and financial institutions—have direct access to the deep insights of our local and international experts.

As your custodian bank, we are responsible for the safety of your securities and assets, which are recorded off-balance sheet. Our services include Trade Settlement, Corporate Action Management, Proxy Voting and Income Collection.

A one-stop shop for all your execution needs, we provide direct access to local and international brokers, who are experts in their respective asset class and ensure the best execution. Thanks to our 24/7 cover, we respond to your needs in real-time, whenever you may need us—even after working hours or on public holidays.


Our state-of-the-art Custody Platform draws information from multiple sources (local and international) and consolidates data in one portfolio, on one single platform. By simply logging in, you can view your portfolio’s composition and obtain real time-pricing information sourced from Bloomberg, helping you to understand your investment life cycle and make more informed investment decisions.

Our direct link to global custodians and agent banks allows us to open accounts in a wide range of markets to facilitate our clients’ investment needs. We have the capabilities for the safekeeping of most asset types including Equities, ETFs, Bonds, Structured Products, Mauritius Treasury Bills, Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds, Money Market Funds and more.

Our shareholders’ strong footing in Africa grants us easy access to the securities markets in Kenya and Rwanda, positioning us as a favourable bridge to the booming East African market.


Our commitment to the custody business and our innovative spirit paved the way for the development of a full-fledged Custody Platform that allows our customers to view their portfolios online in realtime, download valuation reports and manage their investments anytime, anywhere and from any smart device.

We are proud to be the first bank to have successfully on-boarded a Mauritian Rupee Fund on the Euroclear platform and executed a subscription order. This endeavour has greatly benefited local fund managers, whose funds are now available on an international platform and can target a wider range of investors across geographical locations.

Staying ahead in an ever-evolving landscape, we founded the Investor’s Circle, a biannual networking event that brings together private investors, institutions, asset managers and service providers. The island’s very first B2B platform for finance professionals, it allows players from our industry to connect, exchange ideas and address shared challenges within the industry.
