How and Why to File Form N-LIQUID


The ripple-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to spread, causing overall market volatility and even market closings in some countries. These fluctuating circumstances may affect funds’ liquidity, triggering some of the SEC’s liquidity risk management initiatives. One requirement of these provisions is the filing of Form N-LIQUID.


A fund is required to file Form N-LIQUID if one of three liquidity events occurs:

  1. The level of a fund’s illiquid investments exceeds 15% of its net assets;
  2. The level of a fund’s illiquid investments falls to or below 15% of net assets (following the event of 1. above); or
  3. Highly illiquid investments that are assets fall below its set highly liquid investment minimum for more than seven days.

If any of the above happen, the fund must file the Form within one business day of the event.
