This tool calculates the value of your investment at the frequency of the compounding period that you choose. Any additional contributions are applied immediately at the beginning of the period. Detailed results are displayed by year, regardless of the contribution or compounding frequencies you select. If you have selected a target date where the final year is partial (for example, your target date is two years and three months from now), the final year displayed in the results may appear to grow at a slower rate, but that is only because it is not a full year.

This tool is intended to show growth of investments before income tax is applied.
