Lighthouse Prime Announces Upcoming Cap. Intro Events

Aug 26 2009 | 8:58am ET

Lighthouse Prime Services, which specializes in providing prime brokerage services to emerging and newly established hedge funds and managed account platforms, is hosting a slate of events as part of its capital introduction program. 

The firm, in conjunction Hedge Connection, will be hosting an event in New York City on Sept. 30, one in Palm Beach, Fla., on Nov. 5, and a year-end event in New York City on Dec. 8. 

According to the firm, the investor roundtable events provide an open forum for a select number of hedge funds, allowing the funds to meet with several investors comprised of family offices, fund of funds, endowments and seeders, in a fast paced yet intimate setting.

“The success of these events has been driven by a constant stream of talented managers, matched with a rotating roster of highly engaged investors,” said Steven Simmons, managing director of Lighthouse Prime Services.  “While it’s obviously gratifying to hear of our managers receiving allocations, it’s even more encouraging to hear the investors coming back complimenting the quality of the managers and asking to be a part of our events going forward.”

According to Simmons, investors meet a significant number of funds in a short amount of time and are able to learn the key differentiation factors in creating alpha. The roundtable portion of the event is focused and goal-oriented and is followed by a cocktail hour in which funds and investors are able to interact in a more informal environment.
 
“Our ability to provide a bona fide capital introduction program to our prime brokerage clientele is a key differentiating factor among the introducing prime brokers, and reinforces our commitment to being a partner in our client’s growth,” said Jamie Caputo, managing director and co-head of Lighthouse Prime Services.
