Ordinarily, the objective of a growth-oriented portfolio is to make the value of your assets increase over time. One way an investor can help accomplish this is by setting up recurring contributions to their Employer Sponsored Retirement plans such as a 401(k), 403(b), 457, or any other offered plan.
Risk tolerance, or intolerance, is identified by the willingness an investor has, or is open to, with regards to the loss of capital in hopes of gain, or the exchange of additional risk accepted in hopes of greater investment returns.
Growth investors are not to be confused with Trading or Speculative Investors. Trading and Speculative investors are NOT the clientele we serve as they want the maximum possible return with an enormous acceptance of risk which is outside the scope of our wealth management techniques. While return potentials are high, through varying degrees of high-risk strategies, they can result in significant gains or losses.
