What does this calculator illustrate?
The power of compound interest has the potential to increase your savings over a long period of time. The longer you delay your investment plan, the more you will have to put aside or the more aggressively you will have to invest (ie, take more risk) to achieve the same saving goals. This simple calculator compares how much you could have saved at a future time if you started saving now, compared to if you delay starting to save for a certain period of time.
