CAGR Excel (Compound Annual Growth Rate)

Calculate CAGR using Excel

One of Excel’s most spectacular and useful features is the tool which it provides for calculating a CAGR. A CAGR measures the rate of return for an investment – such as a mutual fund or bond – over an investment period of say 5 or 10 years. The CAGR can also be referred to as a “smoothed” rate of return as it measures the growth of an investment as if it had grown at a steady rate on an annually compounded basis.

All you need to do is enter your values in the appropriate cells, and the sit back and relax while Excel does the rest.
