Coronation is a long-term, valuation-driven investment house. Our investment philosophy is deeply engrained in our culture and we apply exactly the same research process when investing in frontier markets as we have done in South Africa for the past 20 years. Our experience in an emerging market has provided us with an excellent training ground for disciplined bottom-up investing in highly volatile macro-economic environments.
We are active, bottom-up stock pickers with a disciplined approach to constructing portfolios based on our assessment of company fair values. We do all our own proprietary research and modelling.
We believe frontier markets represents the next untapped investment opportunity. These markets offer a wide variety of economies and an increasingly attractive economic diversifier for global portfolios.
Our global frontier strategies provide investors access to these opportunities. The investment universe consists of a diverse range of markets including but not limited to 21 African exchanges with more than 1 600 securities, four Asian markets, five Middle Eastern markets, as well as European and American markets. Through our rigorous research process we filter down these opportunities in terms of size, liquidity and foreign holding restrictions.
The portfolios are managed on a clean-slate basis. As such, we do not use indices as a starting point for building a strategy, preferring to rely on valuation discipline and diversification. Our emphasis is on stock selection rather than top-down geographic allocation or macro themes. We are comfortable taking decisive positions away from the benchmark, as these positions are underpinned by convictions derived from our proprietary analysis. Our global frontier strategies typically hold between 40 and 80 securities, with most of the portfolio heavily concentrated in our ten highest conviction views.
The global frontier investment team forms part of the integrated Coronation investment team, which also comprises the South African, emerging markets and global investment teams. The entire investment team, situated in Coronation’s Cape Town office, operates as an integrated unit, with significant sharing and cross-pollination of investment ideas to create a single research platform. This allows the global frontier team to leverage off the experience and work done by the other investment professionals in the company.
Our approach to investing in Frontier markets is long-term and valuation driven. We afford a high premium rating to good businesses and walk away from businesses where it is almost impossible to determine whether they are investible.Watch Video

Notice to Investors in Switzerland
Under the Collective Investment Schemes Act of June 23, 2006 (the “CISA”), the offering, sale and distribution of units in foreign collective investment schemes in or from Switzerland are subject to authorization by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority. The concept of “foreign collective investment schemes” covers inter alia foreign companies and similar schemes (including those created on the basis of a collective investment contract or a contract of another type with similar effects) created for the purpose of collective investment, whether such companies or schemes are closed end or open end. Units in a foreign investment scheme which has not been authorized by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority may only be promoted in or from Switzerland provided that no public solicitation, offering or advertising is carried out by persons operating in or from Switzerland. There are reasonable grounds to believe that the Funds would be characterized as a foreign collective investment scheme from a Swiss legal point of view. As interests in the Funds have not been and cannot be registered or authorized for distribution under the CISA, any offering of the interests, and any other form of solicitation of investors in relation to the Funds (including by way of circulation of offering materials or information, including the Material, must be made by way of private placement, e.g. by limiting the offering to investors considered as qualified investors as defined in the CISA and in Circular 08/8 Public Offering of the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority dated 20 November 2008. Failure to comply with the above-mentioned requirements may constitute a breach of the CISA.
