Awards with HedgeNews Africa:


Peregrine Capital was announced as the winner for best performance by a single manager over 10 years, for their Peregrine Capital High Growth H4 QI Hedge Fund, which generated net gains of 18.31% per annum (at a Sharpe ratio of 1.51) over a 10-year period.

Now in their 12th year, these prestigious awards recognise the best risk-adjusted returns across 207 different funds. The winners are selected based on monthly data submitted to the HedgeNews Africa database, which includes South African hedge funds as well as other pioneering strategies applied across the broader African markets.

The results are based on an established methodology and independently verified data submitted to HedgeNews Africa, the region’s leading independent publisher focused on the hedge fund and alternative asset management industries.

“This is the award that we, as a team, treasure the most. It speaks to consistency of returns over an extended period which is what we aim to achieve at Peregrine Capital. We are proud to have won this award seven times in the last eight years and it is even more special this year as the High Growth Fund recently reached 100x initial investment i.e. R1m invested in 2000 is worth more than R100m today*” says David Fraser, Peregrine Capital’s Executive Chairman and Portfolio Manager.

“2020 was a year of extreme challenges, and we are pleased to note that many hedge funds offered strong gains for their investors while protecting against downside risks, despite extraordinary market conditions,” notes Gwyneth Roberts, the publisher of HedgeNews Africa.
