What is CAGR

CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate), is a type of "annualized rate of return" in financial statements. If you are reading this website's blog backtesting article, you should be familiar with CAGR. The calculation is based only on the initial and final values of the investment amount, without considering the intermediate fluctuations. In fact, it is the compound interest in the compound interest table.


Principal 100, compound interest rate 20%, term is ten years => The final amount is 619.

Principal 100, final amount is 619, term is ten years => CAGR is 20%.

CAGR Formula

CAGR =(FVPV)1n1= \large\left(\frac{FV}{PV}\right)^{\frac{1}{n}} \normalsize- 1

FV (Future Value): The final amount.

PV (Present Value): The principal.

n: The number of periods.
