Dan recognizes the need for people's money to work for them. "Life is hard. People have many hardships- health, jobs, and frayed relationships. Money does not fix these problems. But very often it can lighten these burdens."

"If money can grow rapidly, then people can use these gains to help themselves or other people in whatever problems they face."

"This is why it is vital for people to get a good return on their assets."

*Past Performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment management involves the possibility of losses. Significant general stock market moves up and down can influence the performance of client portfolios. Composite returns are based on client portfolios of over $100,000. Not all clients are included in the composites. All returns include the reinvestment of dividends. All returns are net of fees. Composite returns are derived from aggregated, time weighted returns for clients of Peregrine Asset Advisers. Individual client returns can deviate from the composite returns. While Peregrine uses the S&P 500 as a benchmark, Peregrine does not attempt to mimic the structure of this index. Individual client portfolios vary. The number of stock positions also varies per client.
