Time Value of Money







A dollar received today is worth more than a dollar received in the future.
Interest - is the return you receive for investing your money. The interest rate is the basis for a test that any proposed investment must pass.
Example:




Putting $100 in the bank
Earn 6% interest
After 1 year $106

$100

$106

Future Values and compound rate
Future Value - Amount to which an investment will grow after earning interest.
Simple Interest - Interest earned only on the original investment. Compound Interest - Interest earned on interest.
- The sooner your money can earn interest, the faster the interest can earn interest.
