What are some pros of investing in growth shares?

Potential for capital gains: By definition, growth shares have substantial potential for capital appreciation. For example, a biotech company working on a new disease treatment could be considered a growth stock because there is potential for huge profits and capital gains if the treatment receives regulatory approval. 

Exposure to emerging trends: Change in societal trends can be hugely impactful for growth stocks. For example, COVID-19 accelerated the adoption of online shopping, boosting the share prices of companies like Amazon.com, Inc during the pandemic.
