Lighthouse Financial, a New York-based boutique institutional broker-dealer, has formed a strategic partnership with InfoHedge Technologies, which provides IT services to the alternative investment industry.
The InfoHedge Hosted Platform was selected by Lighthouse Financial as its centralized IT infrastructure platform for the New York, Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Boca Raton, and Huntington offices.
Lighthouse Financial is also offering the hosted platform to Lighthouse’s hedge fund clients. The platform offers embedded SEC compliance, disaster recovery, market data connectivity, third party application hosting, telephony, e-mail with blackberry hosting, file storage, RSA secure remote access and 24/7 support.
"Lighthouse Prime is very well positioned in the introducing prime space," says Alexander Kouperman, president of InfoHedge. "The senior management team has vast experience and knows exactly what hedge fund clients need from a prime broker in terms of execution, technology, capital introduction and service. The Capital Introduction Services they offer from Hedge Connection coupled with InfoHedge Hosted Platform provide an unparalleled suite of value-added services for Lighthouse Prime's expanding client base."
"As the cost of running a hedge fund increases, the InfoHedge Hosted Platform will save our clients operating capital that can be better allocated to other important business functions," says Jamie Caputo, managing director and co-head of prime services. "Lighthouse Prime clients gain access to sophisticated technology and support at no additional cost."
