Lighthouse Long-Short Credit

Lighthouse Accounts: Alternative


The Lighthouse Long-Short Credit Account seeks to profit from changes in the credit conditions of individual bond issuers and credit markets segments represented by credit indexes. The portfolio manager purchases bonds, or sells credit default swaps, with the expectation of profiting from narrowing credit spreads. Conversely, the manager may sell bonds, or purchase credit default swaps, with the expectation of profiting from the deteriorating credit of the underlying issuer. The account utilizes credit derivatives to hedge systematic risk of credit markets to isolate credit selection returns. It frequently uses derivatives to hedge interest rate risk.

It represents a starting point from which investors evaluate if the core makes sense for their own risk tolerance, suitability, goals and objectives. It is not a buy or sell recommendation. There are many types of risk, including interest rate, market, political, and currency. Each type of risk can affect the value of the securities in your account.
