Aggressive Investment Strategy

An investment strategy in which one takes higher risks in order to achieve higher returns. One using an aggressive investment strategy often seeks to invest in young industries with high growth potential, rather than low-risk, low-yield vehicles. For example, during a market bubble, aggressive investors are more likely to make speculative investment than to buy Treasury bonds.
