Compound interest has been called the “Eighth Wonder of the World.” It’s interest earned on interest over a long period of time. That can allow a seemingly small amount of money to grow substantially over many years. For instance, let’s say you have $5,000 saved by the time you’re 25. If you let that money compound at a 7 percent annual rate of return, it will be worth more than $81,000 by the time you retire at 65. That’s compound interest.
