gating
 n.— «A growing number of hedge funds are trying to slow the exodus, because that could force them to dump investments into already shaky markets. They are temporarily preventing clients from withdrawing a lot of money at once, a practice known as gating.» —“Fleeing Investors Put a Strain on Funds” by Geraldine Fabrikant New York Times Dec. 14, 2008.
