Annual interest equivalent rate
The annual comparable interest rate for compounded investments depends on the simple interest rate, the compounding period and the investment period. To compare the interest on simple interest investments and compound interest investments, we use the "Annual interest equivalent rate", defined by calculating the compounded rate over the investment period divided by the number of years.
