Present and Future Value Calculator

Click the above link to open the calculator in a new window.

This calculator will determine:

  1. Present value - how much you need to invest today to achieve a desired amount in the future, based on the nominal annual interest rate and compounding
  2. Future value - how much an amount invested today will provide you at a future date, based on the nominal annual interest rate and compounding
  3. Interest rate - what interest rate is required to provide a desired amount in the future, based on an amount invested today
  4. Time period - years and months required to achieve the desired amount, based on the amount invested and the expected interest rate

The calculator also shows the effective annual interest rate (effective rate of return) in each case.
