Compounding Effect Visualiser

The visualiser assumes an initial investment of $1,000, and then regular contributions of $100 per month for the life of the investment.

 An annual compounding growth rate of 6.00% is applied to these accumulated contributions to arrive at a projected total value (blue line). These same contributions are also shown without any growth rate applied (orange line), as well as returns if only a cash interest rate of 0.50% were applied (black line).

Drag the line below to see how compounding can grow an investment, compared to the returns from simply holding cash.


Compounding Effect Visualiser Disclaimer

The visualiser does not constitute investment advice and you should always seek professional advice from a qualified financial advisor.

 The visualiser is designed as an educational tool and is not intended to reflect actual returns from investing in any asset, either historical or future. Certain assumptions have been used within the visualiser to project theoretical returns at certain points in time; there is no guarantee that any investment will perform exactly as those displayed by the visualiser.

You should always take account of your own circumstances and tolerance of risk and uncertainty when making a decision to invest in a particular asset class. This includes the likelihood that the financial returns resulting from that investment may not reflect any assumptions that existed at the time the investment was made.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best investment for a child?

While there’s no best investment option for a child, kid’s naturally have a long-term horizon and can therefore direct their investments towards higher growth, riskier assets such as shares. A Vanguard Diversified Balanced fund can provide children with low-cost access to growth and income producing asset classes.

What can a child invest in?

A child can invest in many different financial products with the help of parents or relatives. Opening an investment account in the parent’s name, with the child named as beneficiary, is one way children can purchase shares in companies or participate in professionally managed funds.

What is the youngest age to start investing?

The youngest age a child can start investing is 18 years old. This is because Australian law prevents minors from making investments in their own name. However, parents and relatives can open investment accounts in their own name and nominate children as beneficiaries to that account.

How do I set my child up financially?

Setting aside cash and investing this early on is one way to set a child up financially. Committing to regular investments, no matter how small, can help parents leverage the benefits of compound growth as their child grows up. Earning interest on interest can help amplify savings over time.

Where should I invest for my child’s future?

Parents have many options to invest for a child’s future. Youth bank accounts, direct shares, managed funds and ETFs are popular ways to grow wealth. Investing in global stocks will generally provide kids with superior returns over a long period of time, compared to cash in a savings account.
