This Session will consider emerging issues and concerns arising in the area of liquidity and what happens when a fund is unable to satisfy timely redemption requests. It will also cover techniques used by funds and their investment managers to manage liquidity during the life of the fund.  This includes early decisions to set the frequency of redemptions, the notice period required in advance of a redemption date as well as the ability to restrict redemptions for a particular period (a lock-up) and/or impose different types of gates to better manage the fund’s liquidity. The Session will also cover the options available in the event that the fund decides or is required to wind down and return capital to investors, payment of redemption proceeds in-kind and other issues arising for both managers and investors to ensure a smooth wind down and eventual liquidation of the fund.
