Schulte Partner Stephanie Breslow Discusses Tools for Managing Hedge Fund Crises Caused by Liquidity Problems, Poor Performance or Regulatory Issues

The Practising Law Institute’s (PLI) Hedge Fund Management 2013 program included a session entitled “Managing Hedge Funds in Crisis,” which was presented by Stephanie R. Breslow, a partner at Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, co-head of the firm’s Investment Management Group and a member of its Executive Committee.  Breslow discussed the various tools that managers have at their disposal to address crises impacting their funds, such as a run on liquidity, and how those tools have changed over time, particularly after the 2008 financial crisis.  This article summarizes the key takeaways from her presentation.  For a general discussion of post-crisis liquidity and crisis management tools, see “Structuring, Valuation, Fee Calculation and Other Legal and Accounting Considerations in Connection with Hedge Fund General Redemption Provisions, Lock-Up Periods, Side Pockets, Gates, Redemption Suspensions and Special Purpose Vehicles,” Hedge Fund Law Report, Vol. 3, No. 43 (Nov. 5, 2010); “What Are Hybrid Gates, and Should You Consider Them When Launching Your Next Hedge Fund?,” Hedge Fund Law Report, Vol. 4, No. 6 (Feb. 18, 2011); and “IOSCO Report Discusses Appropriate Use and Disclosure of Hedge Fund Redemption Suspensions, Gates and Side Pockets,” Hedge Fund Law Report, Vol. 4, No. 10 (Mar. 18, 2011).
