4 Savings and Investments UniqueSavingsFeaturesUniqueInvestmentFeaturesCommonFeaturesWhat are some features common to both investments and savings?3-A
5 The Advantage of Starting Early “You” invest $2,000 every year in an account that earns 7% each year for 10 yearsYou let your money sit – still earning 7% - until age 65Total Investment = $20,000“Your Sister” waits until she is 31 – did the same thing you did - 7% for 35 years until age 65Total Investment = $70,000Who has more money?You = $361,418 Your Sister = $276,474
6 Time Value of MoneyThe more money you have to save ore invest, the more money you are likely to earnThe higher the rate of interest you earn, the more money you are likely to haveThe sooner you invest your money, the more time it has to make new money
8 Interest = Principal x interest rate x time Earned Interest – payment you receive for allowing a financial institution to use your moneySimple Interest – a “simple” fee paid to you on your principalInterest = Principal x interest rate x timeExample:You open a savings account with $1,000 at a 3% simple APR. What will you earn in interest in the first year?$1,000 x .03 x 1 = $30 interest earned every year
9 What will you start with in year 3? Compound Interest***One of the MOST POWERFUL principals in personal finance! ***Earning interest on interestEach time your interest compounds, it gets added back to your account and becomes part of your principalExample:$1,000 x .05 x 1 = $50 interest in year one$1,050 x .05 x 1 = $52.50 interest earned in year twoWhat will you start with in year 3?
10 CompoundingYou can use this formula to calculate compound interest: A = P (1 + i) A = amount in the account P = principal I = interest rate N = number of years compounded How much will you have after 5 years if you put $100 principal in account earning 10%n
12 Rule of 72 72 = 72 = Years Needed to Double Investment Interest Rate Required=Years Needed toDouble Investment3-H
