The firm had accepted new investment in BVI from March, when it lifted redemption restrictions imposed last December, through July. BVI accounts for roughly $9.5 billion of Tudor’s approximately $11.5 billion in assets.

“The fund remains at capacity at this time,” firm founder Paul Tudor Jones told investors in a letter at the end of September. BVI is up about 17% through the first three-quarters of the year.
