This investment calculator is for demonstrative purpose only. You should not rely that any investment will bring a fixed return over a long period of time! Use the results to plan your portfolio but don’t get obsessed by the idea to hunt for very high ROI. The compounding feature in the calculator illustrates in a great way how compounded interests adds with the time, but you should never forget the risks that any kind of investing carries.
