This Florida-based fund has suspended redemptions:
"If the Fund were to meet the year-end redemption requests we have received, the Fund would be forced to sell more of its investments into one of the worst markets since the great depression."
The fund has instead opted to create two new classes that have modified liquidity, fee and expense provisions as compared with the current classes. Investors will have the choice to transfer all or part of their investment into one or both of the new classes or remain in the existing classes.
"We will allow investors that wish to invest new capital to do so in one of these new classes and until further notice allow them to retain the benefit of their existing high water mark on any new investment. Further, investors that have already submitted a redemption notice will have a one-time option to rescind that notice, reduce the size of their redemption request, and/or choose to participate in one of our new classes."
We don't have information on the size or other characteristics of the fund(s), so please let us know if you can fill us in.

Important: This fund is on our list of hedge funds that are apparently ailing or which we think are worth watching for any other reason. Ailing funds haven't shut down, but they've suffered significant value declines and/or temporarily halted redemptions. Funds on watch may not even have unusual declines, but may be posted if it is felt there may be risk of developing a more serious condition eventually.
