NEW YORK, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Lighthouse Financial, a full-service broker dealer, today announced that it is forming an Investment Partnership with Angad Paul, CEO of Caparo plc, a global association of businesses with over a 1bn Euro turnover. The initiative helps strengthen the Lighthouse Financial franchise and will allow for the firm's continued expansion overseas.

"With Angad based in London, it makes it easier for us to execute on our vision of being operational in the UK in 2010," said Christopher Foxall, Partner and Head of the Global Portfolio Trading Division at Lighthouse Financial.

The arrangement is strategic for Lighthouse Financial as the firm will benefit from the global presence and strong brand of the Caparo Group.

"I am very pleased to be able to work alongside a company such as Lighthouse Financial. They have managed to create considerable opportunity from the events that dislocated Wall Street and I look forward to their presence and continued success in London," said Angad Paul.
