The agency won the account after a five-way competitive pitch process, thought to include Penrose, Broadgate Mainland, Hume Brophy and Rostrom Parry.

'We were gratified to win the Finisterre account against such a broad line-up of competitor agencies,' said Anthony Payne, founder of Peregrine Communications. 'The win came, I believe, as a result of our specialist knowledge, experience and success in the hedge fund sector.'

Finisterre Capital manages emerging markets funds in a variety of asset classes, including sovereign debt, local currency debt, foreign exchange, corporate credit, special situations and equity.

Finisterre's funds are its Sovereign Debt Fund, which invests in emerging market sovereign debt; its Global Opportunity Fund, which has a portfolio of debt, forex and equity; and the Special Situations Fund, which specialises in emerging market credit markets. A fourth fund, the Finisterre Emerging Markets Fund (FEMF), was launched at the beginning of the year.

Peregrine has also won a brief with hedge fund client Hazel Capital. Established in 2007, Hazel is an independent London-based specialist investment manager investing exclusively in the 'cleantech' sector.
