A growth fund is a diversified portfolio that has capital appreciation as it's primary goal, with little or no dividend payouts.
Many investors ask whether it is worth sacrificing income, for more aggressive growth objectives, and the answer is probably that a combination of both work well in one's portfolio.
Income streams are easier to build within your portfolio structure. Finding the right growth funds and strategies can provide a sterner test, particularly in a challenging market climate.
In a market that might seem over bought, where fundamentals are poor, and uncertainty remains- E Financial Newsletter are delighted to offer our readers a selection of funds and strategies that aim to provide GROWTH regardless of the market climate.
With worldwide Equity markets looking over valued, the UK property market grinding slowly to a halt, and with bonds offering minimal yield- it possibly is a prudent approach to understand some of the options available in the market place right now.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of growth opportunities for investors, but it does provide our readers with a solid starting point to begin their research.

Targeted Return- 8-10% per annum
EFN Comment- A year to forget for ISAM last year, but with a strong management team, a bounce back is a strong possibility.
These type of funds and services are searching for Alpha in any market climate. Therefore they tend to embrace risk and volatility in the market place, and hence why their 'aimed for returns' are slightly higher than the average vanilla fund in the market place.
