The Power of Compound Interest


Compound interest means when you earn interest on your principal investment, as well as on interest added to the principal you may have accumulated.

The power of compound interest is so famous since Albert Einstein time when he called it the 8th Wonder…memang dasyatttttt

How compound interest works? Compound interest means when you earn interest on your principal investment, as well as on interest added to the principal you may have accumulated. The addition of interest to the principal is called compounding.

With this compounding rule, it means the earlier you start saving, the greater the interest accumulated on your original investment. The power of compounding can make assets grow much faster.

It can work for you if your invest. However, it will work against you if you borrow such as overdraft loan or credit card loan. You probably end up paying more interest if you delay paying the compounded interest loan.

Back to how compound interest could make your assests grow faster, this can be explained with the example below.

There are 2 guys invests their money to an investment that giving interest of 8% per annum.

  • Person A: Invest RM3k per year started at age 18 and stopped at age 27…total investment is RM30k
  • Person B: Invest RM3k per year started at age 28 continuously until retired…total investment is RM84k

It is clear that Person B invested more money than Person A…will that mean Person B is having more money when both of them retired at age 55?

Look at the graph below and you will know the answer. Even though Person A only invested RM30k, which is RM54k less than Person B, the total investment for Person A has become RM405k, that is RM100k more than the Person wonder Einstein called it the 8th Wonder.

so PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! let your children know how important to start saving NOW…and let it compound!

    pelaburan per yg memberikan compound interest camni ek?ASB?


  5. Wazir says:

    Izwan, Ibut

    Banyak insvestment vehicles yang kasik compounded interest. Even normal saving account pon…..cumenye:

    Saving account kasik ~3% dividen
    ASB kasik ~8% dividen

    Compund interest means interest made that will compound in a given time.

    Example: You inevested $1.00. Intesrest of 10% compounds daily (dalam example Khairul tu yearly compound).

    Day 1: You invest $1.00
    Day 2: 1.00 plus your interest of .10 = 1.10
    Day 3: 1.10 plus interest of 10% (.11) = 1.21
    Day 4 : 1.21 plus interest of 10% (.12) = 1.33
    Day 5: 1.33 plus interest (.13) = 1.46
    and so forth

    mcm mana pengiraan tue dibuat? come the return of investment would be 405k?
    while the other just 309k?
    maaf la…sy masih br dlm ‘dunia’ nie.. :)

    just to share ASB loan dengan easy RHB. First 5 yrs, hanya bayar minimum interest shj. So, boleh afford loan yg lebih tinggi supaya dividen dapat berganda.


    Let say kita hanya sanggup bayar below Rm 500, maka dgn maybank maximum pinjaman 60K shj atau kena extend jadi 25 yrs.


    Loan – 60,000 – bulanan dlm 465 (15 yrs)

    Dividen 60,000 x 8% = 4800. After 5 yrs maybe dlm 85K (x keluarkan dividen)

    Easy ;

    Loan – 100,000 – bulanan dlm 450 (5 yrs) + 1000 (10 yrs)

    Kalau Easy, int rate tinggi sikit, tapi dgn prinsip com interest, maka after 5 yrs ASB ada 145K dengan syarat x keluar dividen (walaupun 100K masih dlm pinjaman bank). So assume 8% div x 145K = 11600 (boleh top up bayar bulanan yg 1000/mth tu)….


  14. jiming says:

    Pengiraan Loan ASB ni macam kira Loan Rumah ke macam kira Loan Kereta?


  18. Khairul says:

    budak kecil, pengiraan Loan ASB guna method reducing balance monthly rest…sama mcm loan rumah…loan kereta tu fixed rate


  19. Khairul says:
