Peregrine is a leading financial services group that caters to a wide range of financial needs for individuals, corporates and institutions, and offers best-of-breed investment management solutions and advice.

The Group’s overarching objective is to provide its clients with consistent, high levels of risk-adjusted returns regardless of market conditions over the medium to long-term, as well as continuing to be a trusted platform to its partners.

Founded in 1996, the Peregrine Group comprises a number of diversified, industry leading, financial services businesses, including Citadel Holdings, Peregrine Capital, Stenham, and SA Alpha. Peregrine also owns 50% of Java Capital, which is widely regarded as the premier independent corporate advisory house in South Africa.

Over the past two decades, Peregrine has earned a reputation for delivering consistent high returns on equity, without taking unwarranted risks, even in difficult market conditions, a snapshot of which is evidenced in the Five Year Review. The Group’s success is primarily driven by Peregrine’s human resources, which it regards as being of unrivalled capability, combined with high levels of ethics and integrity.



Driven by an owner-managed and entrepreneurial culture, Peregrine invests on behalf of its clients and provides comprehensive advice across three business segments:

  • Wealth Management;

  • Advisory.

Through its various subsidiaries, Peregrine can draw on an enviable field of expertise in private client wealth management, offshore and local hedge funds, trusts and fiduciary services, foreign exchange and treasury management as well as corporate finance and advisory services. In addition to this, the Group is committed to high standards of corporate governance and transparency, which has generated a business model that is well-respected by partners, peers and clients, and is recognised for the quality of its advice and services, by the financial services industry at large.

Peregrine listed on the JSE, under the Financial Services sector, in June 1998, and, as at 31 March 2019, had a market capitalisation of R3.9 billion. The Group is responsible for some R124 billion in total gross assets under management and or administration/advice.
