The article reports that some hedge funds are beginning to act a lot more like private equity firms by extending their time horizons or controlling stakes in other companies and taking a more active role in the management of the companies in which they invest. Hedge funds have been traditionally set up to allow investors to withdraw money fairly quickly. To retain a more stable capitol pool, more funds are extending their notice period. This is in sharp contrast to many traditional hedge funds, which often have short lock-ups, such as one year or less, and then allow investors to cash in as often as every month.
