Also, how do you make a capital call?

Investors have a predetermined amount of time, which is usually between a week and 10 days, to provide the funds. Once investors provide the funds they are repaid later on with capital contributions.
Also, what happens if you miss a capital call? The remedy for a missed capital call is in the Limited Partnership agreement that the LPs sign with the GP.

They are locked into the partnership at that value and get their (now reduced) pro-rata of gains when they are realized.
