Grant is responsible for managing the trading volume at Peregrine. This is a very substantial job. The trading volume he oversees often eclipses that of larger investment management firms. As Trader, Grant works at capturing the best execution on every order. "Stocks move quickly. It's vital that I try to get good fills on every order I place. It's a major factor in our clients realizing profits."
Grant also has a major responsibility for allocating investments to Peregrine clients based on their individual investment needs. To do this effectively, it takes someone who knows our clients and understands each of their unique risk/reward profiles. Grant has many years of experience at knowing the needs of Peregrine clients.
Grant has created, implemented and tested the trading systems used by Peregrine. This system is built to handle frequent trading profits realized by Peregrine's clients.
In addition to his role as Trader, Grant is an Investment Adviser who brings a fresh and innovative approach to our investment analysis.

These companies constantly differentiate themselves and innovate to stay one step ahead of their competitors. A good investment advisor can sort out the potential winners from the losers." Grant has a command of necessary investment strategies and communicates them effectively to clients.
Grant earned a BS in finance from Eller School of Business at The University of Arizona. After graduating in 2003, Grant began his career building Peregrine.
