  • The Australian share market is home to several companies growing at a rapid rate.
  • Several ASX growth shares have come under pressure during the recent market volatility and are currently trading at significant discounts to their recent highs.
  • With record low-interest rates boosting capital markets,  growth stocks which are highly leveraged to a bullish market may benefit most.

The big winners on the ASX hail from different businesses but they have a common thread: remarkable growth over many years.

On 19 April 2021, the ASX200 closed 2.10 points up to 7065.60. Over the last five days, the index has gained +1.31% and is +0.41% off its 52-week high presently.
