Eighteen months after Peregrine Communications established its US office in New York City, the specialist financial services communications, marketing and design agency, secured its 18th US client with the communications remit for Long Beach-based Indigo Capital Advisors, a growing commercial direct lender, and New York based PivotalPath, a leading financial technology firm focused on hedge fund research for institutional investors. Peregrine also appointed Steven Bodakowski as Director of the firm's US office. Bringing nearly a decade of financial communications experience, Bodakowski will be responsible for client management, new business growth and will lead the executive media training practice.

"Our roster of clients are among the most innovative firms looking to communicate their investment edge via a differentiated brand strategy utilizing tactics such as media relations, thought leadership, video and graphic design elements," commented Max Hilton, Director at Peregrine USA. "Brand stature is now a key evaluation factor for investors, and for us having the right team in place who understands the value of a multi-channel approach is vital to ensuring our clients' value proposition is clearly articulated."
