For investors with limited tolerance for variability in year-to year returns. Conservative investors seek stability with fairly predictable growth and relatively little fluctuation in value.
For investors willing to accept a trade-off between growth and security, without significant variability in year-to-year returns and only small fluctuations in capital value over time. Moderate investors need a balance approach. With equal emphasis on achieving growth and a steady return.
For patient investors who are willing to tolerate some variability in year-to-year returns and some fluctuations in capital value over time. Growth investors are primarily interested in growth, with capital preservation over the short term as a secondary consideration.
For investors seeking significant potential growth who are willing to tolerate greater fluctuations in capital value over time. Superior long-term results are gained as the Aggressive Growth investor accepts much greater year-to-year variability in returns.
For investors seeking maximum potential growth who are willing to tolerate significant fluctuations in capital value over time.
