Hosted IT Infrastructure Solution Delivers SEC Compliance, Disaster Recovery, Market Data Connectivity and Application Hosting to Lighthouse Prime Clients
NEW YORK, September 21, 2009 - Lighthouse Financial, a New York-based boutique institutional broker-dealer, today announces a strategic partnership with InfoHedge Technologies, a leading provider of IT services and solutions to the alternative investment industry.   InfoHedge Hosted Platform™ was selected by Lighthouse Financial as its centralized IT infrastructure platform for the New York, Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Boca Raton, and Huntington offices. 
 
Lighthouse Financial will also offer this fully Hosted Infrastructure Solution to Lighthouse Prime Services' hedge fund clients. Lighthouse Prime clients will benefit from a comprehensive enterprise IT solution that eliminates all costs associated with running IT systems in-house. The comprehensive solution offers embedded SEC compliance, disaster recovery, market data connectivity, third party application hosting, telephony, e-mail with blackberry hosting,  file storage, RSA secure remote access, 24/7 support, and much more on a subscription basis. 
 
"Lighthouse Prime is very well positioned in the introducing prime space," states Alexander Kouperman, President of InfoHedge.  "The senior management team has vast experience and knows exactly what hedge fund clients need from a prime broker in terms of execution, technology, capital introduction and service. The Capital Introduction Services they offer from Hedge Connection coupled with InfoHedge Hosted Platform™ provide an unparalleled suite of value-added services for Lighthouse Prime's expanding client base.  We are excited about this partnership and look forward to growing InfoHedge's registered broker dealer client base."
 
"As the cost of running a hedge fund increases, the InfoHedge Hosted Platform™ will save our clients operating capital that can be better allocated to other important business functions," states Jamie Caputo, Managing Director and Co-head of Prime Services.  "Lighthouse Prime clients gain access to sophisticated technology and support at no additional cost.  The Lighthouse Prime Hosted Platform, in addition to our robust cap-intro and research partnerships, significantly enhances the value we deliver to our hedge fund clients."
 
The InfoHedge Hosted Platform™ will be branded for Lighthouse Prime Services, and supported by InfoHedge.   The new alliance with InfoHedge offers another example of Lighthouse Primes' partnership strategy that benefits its prime services clients through partnerships with premier providers of capital introduction, marketing support, and independent research services.
