The fund’s valuation was updated to a 22.25% positive NAV adjustment, representing a 2021 net return to investors to 45.57% for the calendar year 2021. That’s just one of a handful of funds they have to offer the accredited investor.
DLP Capital also puts on some outstanding events, a couple of which my wife and I have attended. You can join them at the next one in a couple of weeks, either in-person or virtually, to learn more about the funds, their performance history, and the latest earnings reports.
