LONDON, Oct. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In recent years, investment banking in Nigeria has changed considerably. Low capital requirements, together with a swift process for obtaining operating licenses, have seen the number of players in the market increase rapidly.

In recognition of the support the bank provides to ensure its clients are perfectly positioned to harness capital flows and competitive advantages, Coronation Merchant Bank has been named as the Best Investment Bank in Nigeria in the World Finance Investment Banking Awards 2018.
