ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the rush for the redemption requests from institutional investors for hedge fund manager Farallon Capital Management LLC's multistrategy approach. The rush is due to concern of investors about staff turnover and the lockup period of one year. Farallon's multistrategy approach raised 750 million dollars for a new Asia-focused special situations fund. A consultant mentions that their firm did not recommend Farallon due to long lockup period.
