Lighthouse Bear Market Alternative

Bear Market

Lighthouse Accounts: Alternative


The Lighthouse Bear Market Account invests 100% in short stock positions, the goal of which is to take advantage of anticipated market or stock declines producing a net exposure to equities of less than or equal to negative 20%. The portfolio manager may invest the proceeds from short positions in low-risk assets in order to hedge against broad market rallies. In the event of a broad market rally, the account will lose money on the short positions, but experience a gain  in long positions. Short positions typically account for 60% to 85% of active exposure, but may be 100% short after excluding regulatory collateral. The account will typically exhibit a beta of less than negative 0.3 to equity indexes such as the S&P 500 or MSCI World.
