Our Business

Committed to operating a sustainable business

As well as delivering sound business growth for its shareholders, Peregrine also enhances and safeguards its people, surrounding communities and the environment.

Our vision, strategic objectives and values are closely integrated in all policies, procedures, decision-making processes and operations, with sustainability as the ultimate objective.

As a responsible corporate citizen, Peregrine maintains the highest ethical standards in carrying out its business activities. To enhance this, we introduced a Code of Conduct, setting out overall principles and guidelines to be adopted across the board.

Strict adherence to the provisions of the Code of Conduct is now a condition of employment within Peregrine.

Stakeholder-inclusive approach

As a business that operates in highly regulated financial markets, the relationships, underpinned by trust and reputation management, between Peregrine and its respective stakeholders are the threads that give the business form. This is evident from the skill sets and expertise of its people, through in valuable collaboration with its partners, to the loyalty of its clients. Stakeholder relationships further provide the gateway to identifying the key influencers of their decision-making, which in turn informs strategy.

The role of all the different stakeholders has long been acknowledged by Peregrine and the Group recognises the need to take account of and respond to the legitimate interests and expectations of stakeholders, as mandated in the Board Charter.

Peregrine has identified its stakeholders as individuals or groups who potentially affect, or are affected by, the Group and its operations. These include stakeholders with a material influence such as shareholders, providers of capital, investors, business partners, clients, employees, regulatory authorities and, more broadly, the community in which the Group operates, the media and society at large.
