Investments with Limited Observable Price Changes
Over the period between March 2023 and September 2022, investments within GROW’s portfolio classified as Level 3 have seen limited observable price changes. The infrequency of these changes, alongside restrictions imposed on these shares, has contributed negatively to the company’s performance.
