What’s new? Legion Strategies, one of the funds of the investment firm SkyBridge Capital, has suspended redemptions amid a sharp decline in stocks and cryptocurrencies. An anonymous source told Bloomberg that the freezing is due to the fact that shares of private companies, which are harder to sell, now account for about 20% of the fund’s portfolio.
