Compound interest calculator

Compound interest calculator – Use the Atomic Home Loans compound interest calculator to calculate the interest and growth on your savings. According to Albert Einstein, compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. It’s vital that you understand compound interest and its effect on you, both as a borrower and investor.

This compound interest calculator will allow you to figure out how much your initial deposit will be worth over a certain period of time.

You can adjust the deposit amount, the savings terms, along with the interest rate.

You will likely notice that the longer the term, the greater the growth. Equally, the higher the interest rate the greater the growth.

Conversely, the shorter the savings terms and savings interest rate, the lower the growth.

There’s a great story about the power of the compound effect, whereby Theodore Johnson, a man whom never earned more than $14,000 a year working for UPS, retired and was worth $70,000,000.

This calculator, in conjunction with our savings calculator, will allow you to truly visualize how influential compound interest can be to your bottom line net worth.

In addition, it is worth noting that the frequency which interest is charged also has a tremendous impact on the over growth.

For example, if interest is accrued and paid daily, your growth is a lot higher than if it were accrued and paid monthly or worse yet, annually.

The interest on your home loan is almost always accrued daily and paid in arrears monthly. This compound interest calculator will allow you to see the difference in overall numbers by compounding daily, monthly or annually.
