LHA Ventures LLC is a subsidiary of Little Harbor Advisors, LLC (LHA), an investment advisor registered with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, and has been organized as a platform to empower talented management firms and people by providing infrastructure to grow, including: the implementation of fund structure, documentation and organization, compliance policies and procedures, investment research and analytics, marketing, asset gathering, client services, and facilities. The LHA team is both mature and entrepreneurial with a culture that reflects professionalism, collegiality, transparency, and risk management.
The asset management business is overwrought with passive, beta-rich investments dominated by giant invest-in-everything organizations. LHA believes that alpha production and differentiation from style-box investing is critical in any market environment. LHA Ventures focuses exclusively on alternative investment strategies with a strong preference for absolute return through alpha-generation.
The term "alpha" is used to describe a strategy's ability to beat a particular benchmark.The term "beta" is a measure of the volatility, or systemic risk, of a strategy in comparison to a benchmark.
