Our Strategy

Our strategy is to deliver strong returns and excellent client experience while leveraging our local industry knowledge and insights and providing world-class financial solutions.

Achieving market leadership by reputation or preference

The sub-Saharan region retains significant potential for growth, supported by favourable long term macroeconomic and demographic factors.

• Our robust distribution network and strategic alliances – both regional and international – enable us to provide high quality services across West Africa and beyond, identifying markets and sectors for development.

• Our journey towards unparalleled market leadership is driven by a combination of service excellence, product innovation and market intelligence. This is the platform for success that creates sustainable value for our investors.

Creating strong client relationships

For us at Coronation Merchant Bank, we understand that the relationships we have formed over time are fundamental to the heart of our business. Our company, established since 1993, is only as strong as our customers and partnerships that we have created.

We establish connections and relationships at all management levels in each client organization, and we work hard to maintain these relationships in order to build trust.

We truly care about the success of our clients and partners and believe in best practices in client relationship management. However, we have proven to be an exception as we move beyond making business transactions to the value of authentic relationships.

Increasing our execution capacity to drive market coverage and penetration

Our comprehensive service offering is based on end-to-end synergies created within the group – we draw on optimised trading, risk management controls, end-to-end internal processes and robust IT platforms to support our business.

  • With our strong funding base and lean operating structure, we offer highly competitive pricing, driving out cost inefficiencies and providing exceptional value in comparison with our competitors.
  • In time, our market leadership will support a range of premium and enhanced products and services, supported by our influential reputation and track record.

Developing unrivalled market knowledge

Our people embody the very essence of the services and sectors they advise on, providing unequalled analysis, understanding and knowledge of the African banking industry.

Our Sub-Saharan banking industry coverage model and in-house research capability provide sector-specific knowledge, experience, and relationships to all our clients.

This enables us to provide trusted financial advisory, accurate market intelligence and intellectual property not available to our competitors.

Establishing new benchmarks for governance and risk management

Integrity, transparency and high ethical standards are the cornerstones of our business. We operate a robust risk management framework, backed by a well-defined risk management strategy, philosophy and culture. We work proactively with regulators to ensure that our standards of governance become the benchmark for our industry.
