Investing for growth

Seeking to grow your capital

If you want to focus on growing your money, rather than taking an income from it, you can choose the share class of a Fund which reinvests any Dividends to increase the size of your overall pot.

The other way to capture growth is to buy a Fund with a growth style mandate. Such a Fund will focus on companies with strong growth prospects. These companies tend to reinvest profits in business expansion in contrast to more mature industries which tend to pay out higher Dividends.

The two types of Funds most often associated with capital growth are:

  • Equity Funds – investing in company shares
  • Multi-asset Funds – investing in a range of asset classes

Things you need to know about investing for growth:

  • When buying a Fund for growth it is usual to purchase accumulation units (or share classes), not income units (or share classes). Although it is sometimes possible to purchase income units and have the Dividends reinvested back into your portfolio.
  • To find Fund sectors that aim to generate growth see the IA sector diagram. To explore how different Funds compare in style and performance use our : explore tool.
