Coronation Merchant Bank, Nigeria’s premier investment and merchant banking brand,
today was awarded the International Organization for Standardisation’s ISO 27001:2013

said that the ISO 27001:2013 certification is an affirmation of Coronation Merchant Bank’s
commitment to its vision of being Africa’s premier investment bank in the shortest possible

institution that does not only ensure statutory functions of maintaining the integrity and
confidentiality of customer information; but that will go a long way in enhancing a broad risk
management structure that has the confidence of our customers and other stakeholders. By
this certification, we are making a clear statement of our capacity to not only minimize security
breaches but also effectively predict and respond to security incidents whilst maintaining
business continuity’’.
