How do you calculate compound annual growth rate (cagr)?

## Compound Annual Growth Rate Calculation

**CAGR** - **C**ompound **A**nnual **G**rowth **R**ate is defined as the average growth rate of an investment over a specified time period which is usually longer than 1 year. In simple, it is a measure of growth over multiple time periods. The rate is usually expressed in terms of percentage (%). This short tutorial will teach you how to calculate the cagr (compound annual growth rate).

**Formula:**

**Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) = (Ending Investment Value / Beginning Investment Value)**^{1/n} - 1

Where,

n = Number of Time Periods in Years, Months.

Step 1: Let us assume that,

The ending investment value be Rs.19,500

The beginning investment value be Rs. 10,000

For a period of 3 years.

Step 2: Applying the values in the formula,

CAGR = (19500 / 10000)^{1/3} - 1

CAGR = 1.95^{1/3} - 1

CAGR = 1.2439 - 1

CAGR = 0.2439 or 24.39%
