Investment options - Medium to high risk

    I'm wondering what are the options for medium to high risk investments over a long time horizon. Probably 10k initially but this will be added to over time.

    I'm knowledgeable about risks and tax implications with various investments so don't need advice there. I have bought individual stocks for the last 6 or so years, more out of curiosity and interest in financial markets in general. But as we all know stock picking isn't a recommended way to invest unless you have the necessary knowledge, time and skills to do it. ETF tax treatment rules them out too, so I guess that leaves funds. If we take an S&P tracker as the baseline for risk/return, what other options are there? What funds are there that carry higher risk, without being too stupid? Take it that I'd like to try and "beat" the S&P, whilst accepting that this is high risk. The money I'll be using can be lost
