Growth And Income Fund

The HTML to link to this page
 

A growth and income fund is a mutual fund structured to provide both growth in value and current income payments. A growth and income fund will likely choose small-cap stocks for growth and large-cap stocks for income. Bonds are sometimes included heavily in a growth and income fund as well. The risk level of a growth and income fund is moderate and is therefore acceptable to investors who have a moderate risk tolerance. Managers of a growth and income fund will often research companies that show both growth and income together in the same security. Many mutual families (i.e. Fidelity, Vanguard, Janus) offer a growth and income fund. A growth and income fund may also be called a total return fund.
