Introduction to Growth Mutual Funds

If you are looking for growth of your investment over the long term, then you may be interested in growth mutual funds.

Because their performance is linked to the various markets, their prices may experience volatility in response to market movements. While past performance does not guarantee future results, investors consider growth investments because many have increased in value historically.
