Fund Description

The PRIMECAP Odyssey Aggressive Growth Fund (POAGX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to aggressively grow an investor’s capital. The fund accomplishes this by investing in predominately small- and mid-cap stocks but can hold foreign equities as well. Managers are free to invest in any sector they see fit. The fund chooses it holdings based on fundamental criteria and looks to own companies with prospects for rapid earnings growth.

Given its riskier nature, POAGX is best suited for investors as a satellite position. The fund’s expenses are relatively low, and it is internally managed by PRIMECAP Management Company.
