hfmweek award 2009

Peregrine Communications has been named Best Small Public Relations Firm of the Year at the HFMWeek European Service Provider Awards.

The award recognises Peregrine’s expertise and skill in handling media communications for its hedge fund clients in 2008, during a difficult period for the industry. HFMWeek is the leading European weekly specialist hedge fund title.

“Peregrine Communications captured a number of new clients in 2008 most notably leading hedge fund Brevan Howard. In a tough year Peregrine helped facilitate the listing of Brevan Howard on the Bermuda Stock Exchange and NASDAQ DUBAI as well as to ensure Dexion’s continuation votes passed smoothly.”

“This is a major boost for our strategy of focusing on the alternatives sector, particularly hedge funds,” said Anthony Payne, founder and partner of Peregrine Communications. “I believe Peregrine now represents more hedge funds than any other public relations agency in the UK.”

Among Peregrine’s clients are Brevan Howard, the largest hedge fund in Europe, and Dexion Absolute, one of the biggest LSE-listed fund of hedge funds. The company handles all the major listed funds on the London Stock Exchange, and all the FTSE 250 hedge funds.
