The agency has teamed up with corporate and financial communicator Vugar Khalilov, a former presenter for the BBC's Russian Service. Based in Russia, Khalilov will handle Peregrine's clients in Russia and Central Asia.
Peregrine has also signed up Paris-based Madeleine Resener, who specialises in European media relations for private equity groups and other financial institutions. Her current clients include Sofinnova Partners, a leading French venture capital company, and the European Private Equity & Venture Capital Association.
Peregrine founding partner Anthony Payne said: 'As the financial industry becomes ever more international, it is important for communications agencies to have a worldwide reach. Moscow and Paris were obvious gaps in our coverage.'
Peregrine Communications now has partners in 13 locations around the world including Beijing, Cologne, Dubai and Hong Kong.
