Lighthouse Teams Up With Online Matchmaker

Mar 18 2009 | 12:41pm ET

Lighthouse Financial, the New York-based investment bank and institutional securities firm, today announced a brokerage relationship between Hedge Connection and its Lighthouse Prime Services unit.

The exclusive agreement provides Lighthouse Prime Service clients access to Hedge Connection marketing support and event platforms, enabling small- and mid-sized hedge funds access to pre-qualified investors, including funds of hedge funds and family offices.

The joint partnership will also implement an outsourced marketing desk that will provide hedge funds with a dedicated marketing representative at no cost, leveraging the benefits of Hedge Connection events and Web-based platform.

“Due to the credit markets and TARP restrictions, legacy prime brokers have severely limited the cap-intro offering. Lighthouse is committed to providing our clients innovative and effective support services and cap-intro solutions,” said Jamie Caputo, co-head of prime services at Lighthouse. “I have seen the Hedge Connection website platform and events deliver results and am pleased to offer their services to our clients”

Lisa Vioni, CEO of Hedge Connection, added the her firm’s marketing platforms and services help managers position themselves and build relationships to be in an optimal position when investment begins to flow back into the hedge fund space.
