IMQubator, the seeding platform backed by APG, the €270 billion collective pension scheme for the government and educational sectors in the Netherlands, has selected Peregrine Communications to handle its public relations and communications programme.
The account was won following a competitive pitch process and is lead by senior consultant Max Hilton supported by Anthony Payne (Strategy), Ermanno Mattio (Messaging), Paul Mungo (Content) and Daniel Jason (Monitoring and Media). Established by Jeroen Tielman, now a 25-year veteran of the global institutional industry, IMQ offers an institutional platform where professional investors can gain exposure to emerging managers through the IMQubator multi-manager fund.
“Before and during the pitch process, we considered a number of agencies but in the end we were impressed by the excellence of Peregrine’s team, their understanding of our proposition, and their track record of delivering excellent results for clients,” said Tielman, Founder of IMQ. “We have now been working together for two months and we have been extremely impressed by the press coverage we have received. They have outperformed the mandate so far”.
