Capital Call

A Capital Call is a notice from a fund (sometimes a venture fund) to its investors (oftentimes called “LPs” because the investors are frequently limited partners in a partnership structure) that a portion of the investor’s committed capital is due. In a fund with a capital call structure, the investors commit to a certain contribution over time, and the fund “calls” the capital upon certain events. Contrast this with a committed fund.
