What is compounding?

In simple terms, compounding refers to an increase in the value of an asset with the interest earned both on the principal as well as accumulated interest. Compounding is a process that increases an asset’s earnings from either capital gains or interest reinvested to generate additional earnings over the time. In other words, compounding is the process by which interest is earned on interest.

What is compound interest?

An interest that is added to the principal amount of a loan or deposit is known as compound interest. It is called compounding interest because interest earned is accumulated on the principal amount and the interest for the upcoming term is calculated on the basis of the new amount accumulated i.e. the principal amount and accumulated interest over the period of years. The process of compounding interest is repeated throughout the investor’s investment tenure.

The power of compounding increases the investors’ investment each year, giving him a definite edge over accumulating funds by the way of simple interest.

How is compound interest calculated?

Compound interest is calculated through the below formula :
A = P (1 + r/n) ^ nt

Here P denotes the principal interest, r is the rate of interest and n represents the number of times the interest is compounded in a year and t presents the number of years.

Consider the below example to understand the compound interest calculation in a better way.

Arjun makes an investment of `50,000 for a period of 5 years with an annual interest rate of 10%. With the compound interest calculated on it, the interest earned in the initial year will be calculated on the following basis:
50,000 x 10/100 = `5,000.

The interest for Arjun’s second year will be calculated on the basis of `55,000 i.e. the interest earned and the principal amount.

The interest earned in the second year will be `5,500.

Thus, over the period of 5 years, Arjun will earn a substantial interest of `30,525 with the power of compounding.
