Hedge fund giant D.E. Shaw is planning to slash its fees on illiquid investments.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the New York-based firm told clients it will cut its annual management fee on “side pocket” investments to $1.75% to 2.5%, effective in July. Performance for the firm's side-pocket vehicles has reportedly been flat since its launch in 2006.
