A recent decision handed down by the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands (Court) emphasizes the importance of: (1) ensuring that the correct parties enter into side letters between an investor and a fund; and (2) ensuring that a fund’s governing documents permit the fund to enter into the type of side letter contemplated by the fund and the investor. This decision follows on the heels of another recent decision handed down by the Court that highlights similar principles.
