Funds: exotic funds (emerging countries, diverse industries)
Goal: growth

To name a few: Real Estate Investment Trusts, Health Industry Funds, Latin American Equity Funds, China Growth Funds, Global Agriculture Funds, Social Value Funds, and MicroCap Funds. These types of funds will add some variety to your portfolio - just remember to balance the risk out with more conservative investments.
