What is a CAGR Calculator?

Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) measures the average yearly growth of an asset over a given time. A CAGR Calculator helps investors easily calculate CAGR to get an estimate of the return on their investment. By using the CAGR Calculator, investors get an annual growth rate that can be compared against the benchmark returns.

Navi’s CAGR Calculator is a simple and easy-to-use tool that you could use to check the annual growth rate of your investment. All you need to do is just select the initial and ending value of the investment and the duration.

How to Calculate CAGR?

You can use the CAGR Calculator to get both the Absolute Returns and the Compound Annual Growth Rate quickly and accurately. While it’s possible to calculate your returns manually, to save time, you can use the Navi CAGR Calculator.

Here’s how you can calculate CAGR:

Select the initial investment value

Use the slide bar to select the initial investment value

Select the final value

Choose the final value with the slide bar

Choose investment duration

Select investment duration to complete the process

Once done, you will be able to view your Absolute Returns or the CAGR value using the calculator.

What is the CAGR Formula?

The CAGR Formula is as follows:

CAGR = (FV / PV) 1 / n – 1


FV is the Future Value of the investment
PV is the Present Value of the investment
N is the number of years of the investment

For example, an investor invested ₹20,000 in Mutual Funds in the year 2015. The value of the investment in the year 2020 will be ₹35,000. By using the above-mentioned formula, we can calculate the CAGR of this investment this way:

CAGR= (35000/ 20000) ^ (1/5) – 1 = 11.84%

The above result can be interpreted as: This investment will give the investor a return of 11.84% per annum.

If the investor wants to calculate the Absolute Return on his investment, he can calculate it using the CAGR calculator. The calculation for it will be:

Absolute returns= (FV- PV) / PV * 100 = (35000-20000)/ 20000 * 100 = 75%

The above result can be interpreted as: This investment will give the investor an absolute return of 75% over its tenure.
