Aside from this, several funds also contain GBTC. Among these are the Morgan Stanley Variable Insurance Fund, Morgan Stanley Institutional Fund Inc, the Morgan Stanley Institutional Trust, and some others.
The event didn’t really come as a surprise. Back in June, the analyst Macroscope also mentioned in another tweet “In coming weeks, I expect to see multiple Morgan Stanley funds report new positions in Grayscale Bitcoin.”
