Nigeria’s leading financial institution, Coronation Merchant Bank has once again blazed the trail in merchant banking with the launch of its mobile banking application. The App which is the first of its kind within the merchant banking space provides customers with easy access to their accounts as well as the ability to perform transactions seamlessly without the need for in-person banking.
In spite of the novel coronavirus, Coronation Merchant Bank has been at the vanguard of pioneering innovative solutions to enable its customers to achieve their strategic objectives.
Earlier this year, Coronation Merchant Bank announced its partnership with IFC (a member of the World Bank Group) to provide a $40 million Trade Finance Guarantee facility for its clients.
This was the first time in 5 years that IFC would approve such a facility in Nigeria. Furthermore, the Bank was recently appointed as a designated bank for the collection and remittance of all Revenue Payments (i.e. Import, Excise and other duties) by the Nigeria Customs Service.
Commenting on the launch, Banjo Adegbohungbe, Managing Director/CEO of Coronation Merchant Bank stated that, “We are delighted to be at the forefront of digital banking within the merchant banking space. We recognise that these are very difficult times and our customers are looking for a partner that can help them navigate the challenges induced by the COVID-19 pandemic.
