Lighthouse Market Neutral

Lighthouse Accounts: Alternative


The Lighthouse Market Neutral Account attempts to reduce systematic risk created by factors such as exposures to sectors, market-cap ranges, investment styles, currencies, and/or countries. The portfolio manager achieves this goal by matching short positions within each area against long positions. The account adheres to strategies that are often managed as beta-neutral, dollar-neutral, or sector-neutral. A distinguishing feature this account is that they typically has low beta exposures (< 0.3 in absolute value) to market indexes such as MSCI World. In attempting to reduce systematic risk, it places the emphasis on issue selection, with profits dependent on their ability to sell short and buy long the correct securities.

Overall Risk

The risk rating is based on the account’s past performance as compared to mutual funds and/or ETFs within the same category. 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.
