Compound Interest

Compound interest refers to the principle that when you save money, as well as earning interest on the savings, you also earn interest on the interest itself. Therefore, every year that the money is in your account you are earning interest on each previous year’s interest. This means that not only are your savings growing over time, but that the rate at which they grow gets faster as well.
