Fund Description

The USAA Aggressive Growth Fund (USAUX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to aggressively grow an investor’s capital over the longer term. It attempts to do this by investing in mid- and large-cap U.S. stocks that exhibit various growth characteristics. The fund is run as a “best ideas” fund and caps the number of holdings it has in order to provide a better total return.

Given the fund’s aggressive stance on growth, USAUX is best suited as a side bet in a larger equity portfolio. The fund is internally managed by USAA Investment Management.
