Rule of 72 for Money Management And Financial Planning

Posted on the August 16th, 2008 under Investment, Savings, Retirement by


Building wealth with Rule of 72

For money management and financial planning, Rule of 72 is a golden rule.

Rule of 72 is the most popular financial method to estimate time required to double an investment at a given interest rate, or halve the savings at a given inflation rate.

  1. Years to double = 72 divided by Interest Rate (in percentage), e.g. it takes 12 years to double an investment at 6% interest rate.
  2. Years to halve = 72 divided by Inflation Rate (in percentage), e.g. it takes 12 years to halve an investment at 6% inflation rate.
