How you could retire rich with these 4 mid-cap growth shares

Many Australian investors will see share market investing as a way of saving money for retirement and as a way of diversifying their net worth away from the strength or weakness of Australia’s residential property markets. For example many Australians will own an expensive home, but have little invested in the share market, which may be a mistake given both have produced strong returns historically.

The advantage of investing for retirement over a 5 to 10 or 20-year horizon for example is that you give the power of compounding to do its work.

Ideally you want to find companies capable of growing their earnings over the long term, as growing earnings pay growing dividends, which is just what you’ll need when the time comes to stop working.

Below are four excellent mid-cap growth shares that could help you to a wealthier retirement.

Credit Corp Group Ltd (ASX: CCP) is a debt collection company that has grown its share price around 110% over the past 5 years and delivered a growing stream of dividend payments. Since 2011 dividends have grown from 20 cents per share to 67 cents per share. Credit Corp also has a stable senior management team and is forecasting more growth in FY 2019.

Dulux Group Limited (ASX: DLX) recently posted a net profit uplift of 5.4% to $150.7 million over the financial year ending September 30, 2018.
