Rogers Group is a Mauritius-based listed international services and investment company with specialist expertise within four markets: FinTech, Hospitality, Logistics and Property. Operations within each served market are organised into sectors with 4,545 people, 52 offices across 12 different territories.

History[edit]

Rogers & Co was founded in 1899 by Walter Rogers. However, it all started in 1876, when Mr. Rogers bought shares in a trading company and entered into partnership with Fulgence Laroque. Its activities then involved commerce and shipping.

The Company played a notable role in the creation in 1962 of the leading hotel group on the island, Beachcomber Hotels, and the national carrier, Air Mauritius in 1967.

Rogers has also spearheaded the Global Business sector with the setting up of IMM in 1992 and the business process outsourcing industry with Enterprise Information Solutions in 1999.

In 2004, the Domaine de Bel Ombre inaugurated two Heritage luxury hotels and a championship golf course. The Domaine has since developed further with nature tourism activities and Villas Valriche, a luxury residential estate counting among the largest IRS schemes on the island.

The commercial property arm, Ascencia was listed in 2008. The following year, the logistics businesses were grouped under a single organisation and brand, Velogic.

The equity base was restructured in 2012 in a material transaction that saw ENL Land acquire a majority stake within the Company while spinning off Cim Group.
