Definitions for "Aggressive Growth Funds"
Stock mutual funds that seek high growth through aggressive investment strategies. These funds generally buy stocks of emerging companies that offer the potential for rapid growth.
A fund with an investment objective of rapid growth of capital. Aggressive growth funds usually include funds that invest in smaller companies, funds that invest heavily in a single industry, and funds that employ riskier investment techniques such as leveraging and short selling.
Funds that seek to maximise capital gains as an investment objective. Income generation is not a significant factor. Some funds may invest in stocks of businesses that are somewhat out of the mainstream, such as fledgling companies, new industries, companies fallen on hard times, or industries temporarily out of favour. Others may also use specialised investment techniques such as option writing or short-term trading.
