Coronation was founded in Cape Town, South Africa in 1993 by a group of investment professionals who left an established institution to start a dedicated fund management business. With zero assets and zero clients, their objective was to build a world-class, investment-led and independent fund manager. Today, Coronation is 24% employee-owned and a leading brand in the South African investment industry. We are solely focused on asset management and have a track record of delivering superior long-term returns to our clients over the past two decades. An active investment manager with a long-term valuation-driven investment approach, Coronation currently manages R550 billion in client assets (as at end-December 2018).
Our investment expertise extends across asset classes and geographies, with our longest-running strategies focused on specialist equity and multi-asset portfolios in global emerging and frontier markets.
We believe we are one of the largest and most successful managers of institutional and retail assets in southern Africa and offer both segregated and pooled investment vehicles. Our clients include pension and provident funds, medical schemes, unit trusts, banks, insurers and other fund managers. We also manage assets for a growing number of international retirement funds, endowments and family offices.
We have an integrated global investment team that is headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa. We have offices in London, Dublin, Johannesburg, Durban, Pretoria, and Namibia.
