Coronation Capital.
Capital of Africa.
Coronation Capital is an alternative asset manager with a culture built on promoting innovation, good corporate citizenship and service to our investors. Founded in 2014 in Lagos, Nigeria, we began by managing private capital for Tengen Holdings (a family office) in a captive private equity fund and other investment vehicles. Now, the next step in our evolution is to launch a second private equity fund for third party investors.
Our aim is to build well-positioned, well-run, cash-generative, sustainable companies that become significant employers and sources of growth at a pan-African level.

Our purpose is to invest wisely and create value for multiple stakeholders who believe in Africa. Our people have almost 80 years of combined investment experience.
