Aggressive growth mutual fund

A mutual fund designed for maximum capital appreciation that places its money in companies with high growth rates.

Aggressive Growth Mutual Fund

A mutual fund that invests primarily or exclusively in high-risk, high-return securities. They may invest in IPOs and quickly re-sell; they also commonly invest in options. Very little of the income from an aggressive growth mutual fund comes from dividends; rather, most of its earnings come from capital appreciation. They have a high degree of volatility, and tend to correlate highly with stock market performance; that is, they do well when stock markets do well and poorly otherwise. Some analysts believe that while aggressive growth mutual funds correlate in this way, they do so more strongly, meaning that their values increase and decrease more steeply than stock markets as a whole.
