Investing 101: The Power of Compound Interest
One of the best arguments for planning your finances as early as possible is the effect of compound interest. Setting aside a modest amount of money and directing it to be re-invested over time can result in huge gains for little effort.
In the chart below, we've graphed the effects of a simple scenario: at 6% interest, how much does a person need to set aside each month in order to have 1 million dollars by age 65? Interact with the graph and you'll see: by starting to invest in your 20s, your monthly payments can be drastically lower than someone starting in his 40s or later. Someone consulting with an experienced financial advisor could see even better results!
