A gate provision refers to a statement in a fund’s offering documents that establishes the fund manager’s right to limit or halt redemptions. The prospectus or offering documents may provide more detail on a gate provision, such as scenarios where redemptions would be restricted or halted entirely.

Even with scenarios and guidelines, the decision to exercise the gate provision is the fund managers.
