This is the second article in a two-part series on how a hedge fund investor can maximize the protection of its investment in a fund at three distinct stages towards and at the end of its commercial life. This article addresses measures available to investors during the third stage: when the fund is placed into formal liquidation, either by a court or by voluntary winding up. The first installment addressed measures available to investors during the first two stages: where there are warning signs that the fund may be heading into financial difficulty or when the fund is placed into management wind down.
