Hedge Fund Partnership Agreements – Side-Letters Do Count! « Hedge ...
your deal with each investor is specified  in a partnership agreement (PA). Among other terms, the PA specifies lockup periods (periods of time in which an investment cannot be withdrawn), procedures for withdrawals, and the partner’s ability to rescind previous withdrawal requests. If an investor wants terms different from the standard PA, one method is to agree to a side-letter that overrides the standard terms of the PA.
