While more investors are taking a more defensive posture by allocating their capital into value-oriented funds, there can still be opportunities for growth ETFs to be had. “Schwab’s growth-oriented SCHG fund has rock-bottom 0.04% annual expenses, or just $4 annually in management fees on every $10,000 invested,” wrote Jeff Reeves in U.S. News & World Report. “The fund is admittedly just a vanilla index fund, with a simple screen for growth characteristics and a market-cap weighting that biases toward mega-cap technology stocks like Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft Corp.

Growth exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are as straightforward as they sound: They're portfolios of growth stocks.By definition, a growth stock is any company with an above-average growth profile. In other words, they are companies whose revenues and earnings are expanding faster than the market average. They also often pay little or no dividends, opting instead to reinvest their cash flow in the business to maintain their growth.But they have their pitfalls; namely, when growth slows. Recently, outdoor gear maker Canada Goose (GOOS) lost more than 30% of its value in a single day after reporting lower-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings. Although revenues rocketed 40% higher year-over-year and profits jumped 20%, it still marked the company's slowest growth in eight quarters, prompting fears its tremendous growth was coming to an end. Whether that's true is up for debate. But if you owned GOOS stock, you couldn't have been pleased about the one-day plunge.This is why owning growth ETFs makes so much sense. By diversifying your growth-stock holdings through a fund, you're protecting your downside.Here are 10 growth ETFs to buy if you want to cut back on the risk of owning individual shares.
