Prior to co-founding 36 South in 2001 in New Zealand, Jerry was instrumental in the establishment of the futures and options market in South Africa. He served as an Executive Member of the South African Futures Exchange. He also traded government bonds for a large discount house before being appointed Head of Equity Derivatives for one of South Africa’s largest and most successful merchant banks, Investec Ltd. In 1996, Jerry founded Peregrine Holdings Ltd. The company offered a range of services including stock-broking, futures and options broking, pension fund structuring and financial software development to South Africa’s large financial institutions but its main niche was designing derivative strategies for institutional clients normally packaged as a structured note. Peregrine enjoyed phenomenal early success under his management culminating in a stock exchange listing in 1998 in which the value of the company soared over 400% on IPO.
