Peregrine hands Northern Trust fund admin mandate

Peregrine Guernsey Limited has mandated Northern Trust to provide global custody and fund administration services for approximately US$725 million in assets. The funds will be administered from Northern Trust’s Guernsey office and add to its growing client base in the Channel Islands where Northern Trust provides a range of fund administration solutions, banking, global custody, depositary, credit and fiduciary services.

Peregrine Guernsey Limited is a subsidiary of a leading private client wealth management business in South Africa, the Citadel Investment Group, and manages the group’s offshore funds in Guernsey.

“We appointed Northern Trust based on their expertise and understanding of our unique business needs,” said Hennie Esterhuizen, managing director of Peregrine Guernsey Limited. “As Guernsey’s largest fund administrator and custodian, it distinguished itself with its capabilities to support our core requirements and future development plans.”

Said Belinda Burgess, head of Northern Trust in the Channel Islands. “Guernsey is a top-tier international finance centre that benefits from a robust regulatory and compliance regime and we are pleased to offer a solution to help Peregrine Guernsey Limited achieve their objectives as its servicing provider in Guernsey and look forward to developing our mutual strategic goals in the future.”
