capital growth

capital growth
An increase in the value of invested capital. Investment in fixed-interest security or bonds provides income but limited capital growth (which may be improved in index-linked gilt-edged security). To have a chance of making substantial capital growth it is necessary to invest in equities (see ordinary share), the value of which should increase more rapidly than inflation Investing in equities is thus said to be a hedge against inflation. See growth stocks
