The redemption process for Magnitude will be completed by the end of the year, according to that person and another person familiar with the firm's investment with SAC.

SAC Capital's second-quarter redemption deadline is Monday June 3, which comes as an insider trading probe focused on the firm heats up.

Magnitude joins other outside investors Blackstone Group LP and Ironwood Capital Management, which have requested money back from Cohen's $15 billion hedge fund in the second quarter of the year.
