A day after a crucial SAC Capital deadline for investor withdrawals, traders and money managers are still waiting for details on exactly how much capital the $15 billion hedge fund has lost.
Heading in to the June 3 cutoff date for second-quarter redemptions, SAC insiders were warning that the embattled firm would likely see "significant" outflows of its more than $4 billion in external assets. Private-equity investor Blackstone Group and several smaller investors had already telegraphed plans to withdraw at least some of their capital.
Ongoing legal problems at SAC, whose current and former employees have been under prosecutorial scrutiny for alleged insider trading, appeared to have spooked many others.
But as Tuesday afternoon rolled around, few facts had emerged on how many dollars would leave SAC as a result of second-quarter redemptions (which are essentially demands for money that result in a gradual return of capital between now and year-end).
