Peregrine Capital's Portfolio Managers, from left to right: Justin Cousins, David Fraser and Jacques Conradie.

We have built an exceptional team of investment professionals who are solely focused on refining our investment process each day, to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for our clients. Our process is built on the foundations of honesty, integrity, and an unerring pursuit of the truth, so that investment decisions are based on facts rather than feelings.

We are cumulatively a top five investor in our funds and staff own 75% of our business. The investment team has a significant proportion of their own liquid wealth invested in the Peregrine Capital funds because we believe our funds are the best long-term investments that we can own. Investing heavily in our own funds ensures that our interests are fully aligned with those of our clients. This alignment guarantees that our team endeavours to always act in the best interest of the funds.

We have been there from the beginning, helping to protect and grow the wealth of our clients.

Our value proposition can be summarised into three key points:
  • Exceptional long-term returns
  • At lower levels of risk
  • With the diversification benefits of low correlation.

Our investment philosophy

  • We believe that a disciplined and consistent application of our investment process will result in the generation of superior returns for our clients over the medium to long term.
  • We believe that consistent outperformance can only be achieved through superior knowledge of companies and their securities, not through attempts at predicting what is in store for the economy, currencies, interest rates or the overall level of markets
  • We work very hard to identify great investments, and are never willing to just follow the herd, so that investment decisions are based on facts rather than feelings
  • We actively look for optionality in company earnings that the rest of the market does not see, appreciate or value
  • We are highly skilled at analysing special situations that require huge amounts of work, detailed modelling and intricate analysis skills, which gives us an edge against our competitors
  • We constantly strive to improve our investment process by embracing inevitable change and acknowledging that the learning process never ends.

Our funds

We offer three funds that cover the risk spectrum: the Peregrine Capital Pure Hedge Fund (low risk), the Peregrine Capital High Growth Fund (moderate to high risk) and the Peregrine Capital Global Equity Fund (high risk). All our hedge funds are FSCA regulated unit trusts. The Global Equity Fund is a UCITS fund authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland and is also authorised by the FSCA under Section 65 of the CISCA.

Investing heavily in our own funds ensures that our interests are fully aligned with those of our clients.

The recent launch of our Global Equity Fund gave us an opportunity to offer our clients exposure to diversified international equities and therefore another avenue for providing long-term capital growth. The team will apply the same investment philosophy to manage the Peregrine Capital Global Equity Fund that has been consistently applied to generate exceptional investment returns for our clients since 1998.
