Mauritius Finance Minister Pravind Jugnauth made the announcement in Port Louis today during his annual budget presentation. The sovereign fund will have the ability to invest a wide variety of asset classes such as fixed income, equities and alternatives.

The money will come from the US$350 million in its foreign currency reserves and US$ 150 million from a Treasury foreign currency fund.

The government of Mauritius is keen on having greater financial stability in the foreign exchange market.
