Abler awarded for being the leading financial services GRC consultancy firm in Mauritius for 2022

We are pleased to note that Abler, an independent specialist compliance consulting boutique firm headquartered in Mauritius, has been named the “Leading Financial Services GRC Consultancy Firm of the Year 2022” in Mauritius by the AI Global Media Awards.

The Abler Group strives to be at the forefront of innovation in the compliance and digital fields, operating mainly in the African, Middle Eastern, and European markets. Since inception in 2017, Abler has grown to include fifteen staff who are passionate about Anti-Money Laundering and Combatting the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) compliance and providing quality client service.

For its part, the awarding body, AI Global Media, is a UK-based organisation with more than a decade of experience in the field of media and publishing. Since its inception in 2010, AI Global Media has cemented its position as a leading multi-platform publisher of entertaining and informative finance, wealth and lifestyle publications.

Shahannah Abdoolakhan, the Founder and CEO of Abler Group, states, “It is my privilege to receive this award on behalf of the entire team at Abler, where we hold at heart the vision of simplifying the ever-evolving web of legal and regulatory changes and assisting clients in becoming successfully sustainable by providing compliance insights, innovative solutions and support.”

“Realising that many firms were grappling with the need to implement effective AML/CFT compliance frameworks in line with their regulatory obligations, I launched Abler in 2017 and it is humbling to see how the firm has grown from strength to strength since. This award by AI Global Media serves to reinforce our commitment to quality across all our offerings in the arena of compliance consulting, a task that is only becoming more critical as global regulatory bodies such as the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) tighten the net on jurisdictions that fail to evidence sufficient adherence to best-in-class AML/CFT standards.”

Shahannah has over 18 years’ experience in the banking and financial services sector, gained locally and internationally, which has helped her develop a unique insight into the world of compliance, and she has used her experience and expertise in good stead to take Abler to the next level. Under her leadership, the Mauritius-headquartered company has recently launched its operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is looking forward to the next phase of its growth in this exciting market.
