Family offices and wealth managers educate their clients on the risks and rewards of investing in hedge funds. Often overlooked in that education is the real meaning behind the hedge funds' liquidity provisions. Sharing a common provision like the one seen below doesn't mean the investor understands the effect it can have.
SAMPLE LIQUIDITY PROVISION
For a lower fee schedule the investor can select a 3 year soft lockup with one year rolling soft lockups. During lock-up periods, redemptions can be made quarterly with a 20% gate on 45 calendar days written notice. Otherwise, 100% redemptions are permitted on your anniversary at quarter-end, and each anniversary thereafter, with 20 business days written notice. A 10% holdback is applied until audit is done.
