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.

aggressive

Of or relating to an investment philosophy that seeks to achieve above-average returns by accepting above-average risks. An example of an aggressive investment posture would be confining one's investments to the common stocks of companies in young industries with high growth potential. Likewise, seeking high current yields by purchasing bonds issued by financially weak companies is an example of aggressive investing.
