Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) Calculator
CAGR is a useful measure of the growth of your investment over multiple time periods, especially if the value of your investment has fluctuated widely during the time period in question.
To calculate CAGR, enter the beginning value, ending value and number of periods over which your investment has grown. Use the drop-down menu to select the length of the time period in question – weeks, months or years.
To learn more about how CAGR works, what it is and why it's so important, check out the definition in our Financial Dictionary. You may also be interested in these related terms: capital appreciation, compounding, average annual growth rate (AAGR) and average annual return (AAR).

What it Means...
If your investment grew from 100 to 110 during the past 2 years, then the CAGR of your investment was 4.88% per year.
The CAGR calculator can also be used to determine the growth rate you'll need in the future to reach the investment goals to set today.
For example, if you have 100 dollars today, and after 2 year, you'd like your investment to be worth 110, then you will need to find an investment that is expected to achieve compound annual growth rate of 4.88% per year.
