About Us

New Vision. A 20‑Year Journey.

Lighthouse’s flagship fund has been managed by Sean McGould since 1996, with an aim to provide a reliable alternative to traditional fixed income investments while striving for lower correlation, less volatility, and minimal beta to traditional markets.

Shared History. A Common Focus.

Lighthouse Investment Partners began as the alternative investment division within a multi‑family office based in the United States.

Prior to establishing Lighthouse, four of the current Lighthouse principals worked together at Trout Trading Management Co., Ltd., a Bermuda‑based global hedge fund operation.

Institutional demand and a plan to develop additional investment solutions prompted Lighthouse to separate from the multi‑family office parent company in 1999.

Evolution. Innovation. Leadership.

Lighthouse's history is marked by the desire to continually improve our capabilities—to create and deliver investment solutions for qualified investors.

From Vision to Achievement.

Lighthouse's mission is to create and deliver high quality, innovative investment solutions that safely compound client capital. We work to continuously improve our investment, client service, and operational capabilities, with the goal of enhancing our client’s overall experience.

At Lighthouse, we have built our infrastructure over time to handle the complexity of operating one of the largest managed account programs in terms of number of managers and assets under management.

Our proprietary managed account program has been in use since the Firm’s founding, and currently includes approximately 100 managed accounts across various strategies, asset classes and geographies.
