Clawbacks would be very unusual - here are two examples of situations in which the Fund may need to claw back distributions to satisfy the Fund's obligations (but this is by no means all-inclusive):

  • If proceeds have been over-distributed, particularly in a fund with "deal by deal" distribution; or
  • In lawsuits where the Fund must indemnify.
