First Selectman Jim Marpe will conduct a ribbon cutting ceremony and extend an official

welcome on May 13 at 2 pm, as Brightlight Capital Management, a long/short small cap

value manager, opens its new office at Sconset Square on Myrtle Avenue in Westport.


Mr. Marpe welcomes the growing hedge fund to town, saying “Westport is a great

environment for financial services businesses like Brightlight Capital. We wish them

great success.”

“This is a very exciting and important time for Brightlight Capital,” said Dima Rubinchik,

founder and portfolio manager of the three year old firm. “Two of our three partners

live in Westport, so the decision to move here from New York was an easy one. We

have plenty of room for our current needs and room for the firm to grow. Being close to

Westport’s retail hub is an added convenience for our employees.”

The office space was previously the home of Westport News and is located above

HB Home at Sconset Square on Myrtle Avenue. Other tenants include Bungalow,

Geiger Landscape Design, Blue Lemon Restaurant, Snip Doggy Dog and The Travel
