The Bridge GPs traditionally have a General Partner commitment to the respective fund, which is usually satisfied by affiliates direct investment into the funds. For the General Partner commitments for BSH I GP and BMF III GP this commitment was satisfied by notes payable (“General Partner Notes Payable”) between the General Partner and certain related parties or outside investors (“GP Lenders”) for reduced management fees. Under the terms of the General Partner Notes Payable, the GP Lender enters into a notes payable with the respective General Partner, which then subscribes to the respective fund for the same amount as the amount of the General Partner Note Payable. The General Partner Notes Payable mature based upon the terms of the limited partnership agreement of the respective fund. The carrying value of the General Partner Notes Payable represents the related GP Lender’s net asset value in the fund. The GP Lenders are entitled to all returned capital and profit distributions net of management fees and carried interest. We have elected the fair value option for the General Partner Notes Payable so that changes in value are recorded in unrealized gains (losses). The following table summarizes the carrying value of the General Partner Notes Payable (in thousands):
