WCompound interest
  • Compound interest is interest added to the principal of a deposit or loan so that the added interest also earns interest from then on. This addition of interest to the principal is called compounding.
  • To define an interest rate fully, allowing comparisons with other interest rates, both the interest rate and the compounding frequency must be disclosed.
  • For any given interest rate and compounding frequency, an equivalent rate for any different compounding frequency exists.
  • Compound interest may be contrasted with simple interest, where interest is not added to the principal (there is no compounding).
