According to Albert Einstein…
“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world.
He who understands it, earns it… he who doesn’t, pays it.”
If you invest $1,000 in Australian listed companies on 1 July 1993 then 30 years later you will have 14 times that amount or $14,150 which is a excellent result.
However, if you invested that same $1,000 and added $100 per month for 30 years then you will have 11.8 times more than $14,150 or $166,468.
Compounding is truly the secret ingredient for wealth accumulation but it’s not a secret.
