Private Placements

At Coronation Merchant Bank, we understand that successfully raising capital means targeting and reaching the right audience, with the right message, at the right time. We help corporations achieve this by helping them cultivate and foster relationships with High-net-worth individuals and institutional investors while navigating the intricate securities regulations in the market.

Rights Issues

Coronation Merchant Bank operates with the knowledge that cash-strapped companies turn to rights issues to raise capital in order to meet their financial obligations. With this understanding, our Securities professionals offer outstanding services to entities seeking to raise capital without changing the current ownership of their holdings by offering the purchase of additional securities to existing security holders.
