    Growth Fund

    One must invest with an investment horizon of at least five years. It would be best if one could stay invested for more than ten years. Growth funds generally have a higher price-to-sales and price-to-earnings folds. This will be compensated for the investors as they get above-average returns and earning from the funds.
