Principle of Compounding

Welcome back to the second edition of the Finsnap News!!

Today, we are going to be talking about a very important concept that is a must know for people of all ages - the 8th wonder of the world -


A financial chain reaction- Compounding

Compound interest is the addition of interest to the principal sum of a loan or deposit, or in other words, interest on interest. It is the result of reinvesting interest, rather than paying it out, so that interest in the next period is then earned on the principal sum plus previously accumulated interest.

Let’s understand the mathematics behind this moneymaking tool through this example:

This calculation shows that we have earned more than one fourth of our investment amount by merely keeping it aside for three years.

Ask Warren Buffett for the single most powerful factor behind his investing success, and he'd respond “compound interest” — without skipping a beat. ... Such is the remarkable power of compound interest, which Einstein called the eighth wonder of the world.

Now that we know about the power of compounding, we hope you have understood the importance of investing early.

Just imagine -- Invest Early and get more money at the end!!
