Background Information

What does Future Value mean?
Future value (FV) is the value of a current asset at a specified date in the future based on an assumed rate of growth.
Importance of Future Value
The future value formula is essentially used in various areas of finance. IT also allows investors to account for recurring deposits, annual interest rates, and taxes. This formula can be incorporated into other formulas.

FV = PV * [(1 + R)T]


  • FV = Future value of your goal
  • PV = Present value or current cost of your goal
  • r = annual rate of inflation
  • T = time left to reach your goals (in years)

If a sum of $1,000 invested for 5 years in a savings account. That is having 10% compounding interest rate. Then according to the formula, the future value will be:-

FV = $1,000 * [(1 + 0.10)5], therefore, $1,610.51.
