Hey Coach has projected your future investment portfolio value based on the annual return of individual investments. Select a bar on the chart to see how your portfolio changes over time.

The investment projections use today’s dollars. This means we have reduced your investment returns to account for inflation. By using today’s dollars you can value your future investment portfolio by your current income levels. If the results were shown in future dollars, your returns would be larger but it would be more difficult to compare to your current financial position.

We have assumed compounding growth for your investments, calculated using a future value model. Compounding occurs when an investment generates growth from both its initial value and the accumulated value from future years. Compounding, therefore, differs from linear growth, where only your initial investment grows each year.
