Who Should Invest: An aggressive portfolio is appropriate for an investor with a high risk tolerance and a time horizon longer than 10 years. Aggressive investors are willing to accept periods of extreme market volatility (ups and downs in account value) in exchange for the possibility of receiving high relative returns that outpace inflation by a wide margin.
