Fund Description

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

Given its riskier nature, POGRX is best suited for investors as a satellite position. Expenses for the fund are relatively low-cost and it is internally managed by PRIMECAP Management Company.
