How many more doubles do you need?

Most people don’t really comprehend the power of compound interest. A simple way to think about it is to visualize how long it takes something to double.


The “rule of 72” is a very simple formula that calculates how long it takes for something to double. For example, a 10% rate of return doubles every 7.2 years (72 / 10). See the two examples below showing what a big difference the rate of return makes on how much you have after the same amount of time!
