SMALL CHANGES 
BIG RESULTS

How Understanding Compound Interest Has The Power To Transform Your Life

Albert Einstein described compound interest as “the 8th wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it; he who doesn't, pays it.”

 

And he was right - simple maths proves it.

 

Good compounds into great - 1.01^365 = 37.78

 

Bad compounds into terrible - 0.99^365 = 0.025

 

By harnessing this power in your decision making, you can create life changing benefits for yourself and your family.

 

LET'S SHOW YOU HOW

 

Suppose you invested £250,000 for 25 years.

 

Your choice is between:

a) an expensive (1.5% p.a.), tax-inefficient (20% tax) investment; or

b) an inexpensive (0.5% p.a.), tax-efficient (0% tax) investment.

 

Both investments return 5% p.a. before costs and tax.

 

Option b) is the obvious choice, but what’s less obvious is the absolute difference between the outcomes of each one.

 

Under option a) you’d end up with £498,618.

Under option b) you’d end up with £751,359 - a difference of £252,741

 

That’s more than you invested in the first place!

 

SO, JUST HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?

Taking time to find an investment that reduces your cost by a seemingly small 1% has earned you an extra £161,000.

 

Ensuring you invest in a tax efficient manner has earned you an extra £92,000.

 

GENUINELY LIFE CHANGING AMOUNTS

 

The real benefit of these two small choices to you and your family could easily be affording your dream home, affording private schooling for your children.

 

Or it could equate to working 5 years less before you retire.

 

Just so that properly sinks in…taking time now to choose a lower cost, tax efficient investment could REDUCE THE TIME YOU NEED TO WORK BY 5 YEARS!
