Business Description: HFA Holdings Limited (HFA) is a holding company for a specialist global funds management business, which operates through its two wholly-owned subsidiaries including an Australian based Certitude Global Investments Limited, and a US based fund manager Lighthouse Investment Partners (LLC). HFA provides investment management products and services to investors globally, with offices in Sydney, Brisbane, New York, Chicago, Florida, London and Hong Kong.
Strategy Analysis: For Lighthouse, HFA seeks to diversify its distribution as much as possible, particularly in the retail network as well through deepening its institutional relationships. It plans to diversify across geographical areas, particularly Europe and Asia. It proposes to grow the business model and AUM by capitalising on favourable market trends and developing new absolute return products to meet markets needs and wants. The managed account platform is regarded as a critical advantage in the future success of Lighthouse. The alliance with Apollo is an important initiative that will help grow the Lighthouse distribution capabilities. In Australia, HFA¬īs strategy revolves around the rebranding and repositioning of Certitude. This includes becoming a multi-asset class active funds manager. In addition to its traditional absolute return products, Certitude will offer a broader range of single manager investments managed by leading active investment managers. It will also seek to expand its client base by broadening the existing retail base, targeting high net worth/SMSF clients, dealer group model portfolios and multi-managers.

Most of those who take a political approach to the budget assume that if it's in deficit, the way you get it back to surplus is to cut government spending or, if you're a really bad person, increase taxes. They forget it's the budget itself that's supposed to do the heavy lifting.
