What is a growth investment style?

A growth, also referred to as high growth, investment style prioritises capital growth in your investment.

This type of investing is often high-risk and requires you to have a tolerance for risk and volatility. Typically, investors employing a growth strategy are unable to have immediate access to their investment.

If this style is for you, a longer-term investment is to be expected and while a growth strategy comes with high-risk, high returns may follow.

Suitable to help achieve financial goals such as:

  • Investing on behalf of children
  • Children’s education
  • Retirement/Superannuation
  • Building wealth outside of super

Timeframe

Designed for investors with an investment timeframe of 5-7 years.

Asset allocation

Generally, the asset allocation for a growth portfolio would include 80% growth assets (shares, infrastructure, listed property) and 20% defensive assets (cash, bonds, fixed interest).
