Compound Interest >>>TOP
Interest paid on capital and its accumulated interest.

*Interest earned on an annual investment of $1000 compounded annually.

The Rule of 72: The Rule of 72 is a way of estimating how long it will take to double your investment. In order to calculate this, take 72 and divide it by the rate of return you expect to earn on your interest. For example, if you expect to earn 12% on your investment, you can expect to double your money in 6 years.

Rule of 40 >>>TOP
The Rule of 40 is a way of estimating the number of years it takes for management expenses to consume 1/3 of your investment. In order to calculate this, take 40 and divide it by your mutual fund's Management Expense Ratio (MER). For example, if you have chosen a Mutual Fund with a 2.1% MER (the Canadian Average), in 19 years 1/3 of your investment will have been lost to fees. Choosing a fund with a higher MER, such as 3% will only take 13 years to lose 1/3 of your investment.
