Save more with compound interest

The power of compounding helps you to save more money. The longer you save, the more interest you earn. So start as soon as you can and save regularly. You'll earn a lot more than if you try to catch up later.

For example, if you put $10,000 into a savings account with 3% interest compounded monthly:

  • After five years, you'd have $11,616. You'd earn $1,616 in interest.

  • After 10 years you'd have $13,494. You'd earn $3,494 in interest.

  • After 20 years you'd have $18,208. You'd earn $8,208 in interest.
