Locked-Up Capital: Investment Necessity or Business Demand



   Thursday May 21st  |  Locked-Up Capital: Investment Necessity or Business Demand

Amid the market upheaval of the global financial crisis, liquidity was the rallying cry of the day and many investors turned away from longer-dated investments, demanding the most frequent liquidity terms they could access. Those events – and the resulting fear – have been fresh in the collective market memory, and many investors shunned illiquidity risk until recently. Today, there are as many managers seeking locked-up capital for their product or strategy as there are seeking it to bring stability to their capital base and reduce business risk. When does it make sense for an institutional investor to lock-up an investment? Does it have to match the underlying strategy or is a fee-break / founder's class good enough?
