Coronation Group maintains strategic investments in leading players in the technology and energy sectors.


Working in close collaboration with Founder and Chairman Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, the Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Wole Onasanya will oversee the strategic priorities of Coronation’s ecosystem. These priorities include building digital platforms, establishing strategic partnerships for exponential growth, and maximizing shareholder returns.
