Building your portfolio for the long run? Calculate the estimated investment return and see how much you can make through our REIT picks
The goal of investment is to achieve long term returns and to build up the portfolio for retirement. How much you could potentially make over time? Try out the compounding calculator below and also estimate your potential returns through reitscompass' REIT picks.
How to use reitscompass' compounding calculator:
Enter an initial capital. For example, let's say you have $10,000 to start investing right now, enter that amount here. If you don’t have an initial capital to start now, you can enter $0.
Enter your monthly contributions. If you plan to invest a certain amount every month into your investment account (a good strategy to build up portfolio in the long run), enter the amount here. If you do not plan to make regular contributions, enter $0.
Enter the years of investment. How long do you plan to keep your money invested? If you’re investing in stocks, it’s generally a good idea to stay invested for at least five years to navigate through all the market volatilities.
Enter your expected rate of return. For a point of reference, the Straits Times Index (STI) has a historical average annual total return of about 8%, not accounting for inflation. This doesn’t mean you can expect 8% growth every year; you could experience a gain one year and a loss the next. But if you keep your money invested for the long term, the goal is for these gains and losses to average out over time.
Portfolio Worth. Once you are done with all the entries, the calculator will automatically calculate your potential returns and compare it with the reitscompass picks. (Note: our REIT picks outperformed the STI by an average of 5% to 8% per year in the past 10 years. Get access today at as low as $0.16/day.
