What is a growth mutual fund?
A growth mutual fund aims to provide investors with long-term growth through the capital appreciation of their investments.
Who should invest in this fund?
This fund is ideal for investors who are:
seeking a medium to long-term investment option
not averse to the risks associated with equity-based mutual funds
seeking to protect the purchasing power of their investment from rising inflation by obtaining potentially higher returns than traditional savings products
interested in buying equity securities (stocks) but who don’t have the time or the expertise to monitor the performance of stock in the different markets
Stocks have traditionally provided higher long-term returns than traditional savings products such as fixed deposits and even money market funds.
