  1. side pocket

    A side pocket is a financial term primarily used in hedge fund investing. It's a separate account within a hedge fund where illiquid, hard-to-value, or long-term investments are placed. It separates these problematic assets from the general portfolio, allowing for normal operation and easier valuation of that portfolio. Investors interested in these assets will typically have separate liquidity terms, often having to wait longer to realize a return. Side pockets are designed to prevent redemption requests from forcing the premature sale of illiquid securities at steep discounts.
