Although the Peregrine Fund is global in scope, it focuses primarily on equity investments in Canada, and secondarily in the United States. Our largest area of sector concentration is in technology. No single benchmark perfectly matches this strategy, but four widely known benchmarks are somewhat relevant:
- The S&P/TSX Composite Index (Total Return C$) — the most widely recognized diversified Canadian equity index
- The S&P/TSX Small Cap Index (Total Return C$) — the most widely recognized Canadian small cap index
- The S&P 500 Index (Total Return C$) — the most widely recognized diversified U.S. equity index
- The NASDAQ Composite Index (C$) — the most widely recognized technology benchmark in the world
These benchmarks are displayed in the interactive chart above. The Peregrine Fund has considerably outperformed all four benchmarks over time.
