BUILDING COMMUNITIES

Although building and securing the wealth of our clients is the Peregrine Group’s top priority, we also recognise the need to contribute towards the socio-economic development of South Africa. In addition to our staff-lead charity initiatives, Peregrine aspires to spend 1% of its South African subsidiaries’ net profit after tax on social initiatives. The group’s Socio Economic Development (SED) forum which comprises representation from Peregrine SA Holdings, Citadel Group, Peregrine Securities, Peregrine Capital and Java Capital oversee the allocation for funds to a number of beneficiaries.
