North Rock

North Rock Capital is an investment management firm built upon a global multi-manager platform. The strategy deploys capital across a diversified set of relative value fundamental and quantitative equity-focused portfolio manager teams (or “PM Teams”).

North Rock principally seeks to partner with sector and regional specialists that possess deep experience in a defined universe of securities and utilize that specialization and focus to pursue long-term sustainable alpha. North Rock's focus is to harness and manage the combined prowess of their PM Teams to achieve high-quality returns through idiosyncratic risk, with low dependence on market direction. Further details regarding North Rock can be found here

 
Mission Crest

Mission Crest Capital, a global multi-manager investment platform, launched in 2019. The global macro strategy invests long and short across commodities, currencies, equity indices, and fixed income globally in developed and emerging markets. The strategy began as a natural evolution of Lighthouse’s experience in global macro and CTA investing, sourcing trading talent, and operational infrastructure.

Pier61 

Pier61, launched in 2022, is a multi-manager investment platform focused on opportunities influenced by climate and the energy transition across commodities, environmental markets, equities, and insurance-linked securities.

Penglai Peak 

Penglai Peak, launched in 2022, is a multi-manager investment platform currently focused entirely on Japan but with the potential to expand to other areas of Asia in the future. The strategy employs a low-net equity approach through a variety of methods including active engagement with company management teams and fundamental analysis.

Global Equities 

Lighthouse’s global equity investment platform dates back to the Firm’s inception and focuses on fundamental long/short equity strategies by sector and regional specialists as well as quantitative equity strategies. The strategy aims to primarily drive returns from stock selection (i.e. alpha) and, over time, be largely independent of macroeconomic drivers and market direction.

Opportunistic

Since 1999, Lighthouse’s opportunistic investment platform has evolved across different market environments and cycles. Core strategies include credit, event driven, equity capital markets, and fixed income.

Strategy objectives only serve as guidance in evaluating and monitoring the strategy and are not meant to forecast, predict, or project results. Objectives represent a target based on our forward-looking expectations, do not reflect actual results and are subject to change. There is no guarantee that any strategy will resemble such objectives.
