Focusing on growth
Investing for growth simply means that you’re less focused on taking an income from your money and are more interested in seeing your capital increase. Whether it is for a retirement nest egg or to fund a future need, if your main aim is to build up the value of your capital over time, you can choose to invest in funds that predominantly aim to grow your money over the medium to long-term.

- Invest for a child’s future
- Save for a rainy day
If you’re considering stock market investment, it makes sense to spread (or diversify) your risk across a range of companies, sectors and individual countries. At BMO, our range of investment trusts can help you to do this.
It’s worth bearing in mind that by mixing assets that perform well in different economic and market circumstances, it should be possible to create a diversified growth-focused portfolio that offers the potential for better returns and reduced risk over the longer term.
The value of your investments can go down as well as up, and you may not get back what you originally invested.
Why invest for growth?
Investing for growth suits those who are more interested in investing for the long term to allow their money to grow. This could include investing for a child’s future or saving for your dream house.
