“Investors are expecting better transparency, asset protection and flexibility from their hedge fund investments and fund of hedge fund managers,” said Kelly Perkins, co- chief investment officer of Lighthouse. “Our long term experience in risk management and investment due diligence combined with our unique structure helps us in achieving those objectives for current and prospective investors.”
