The Key points from this article are:

  • Compound interest is an investor’s best friend.
  • The higher the return, the greater the investment contribution and the longer the time period the more it works.
  • To reap maximum advantage from it, ensure an adequate exposure to growth assets, contribute early and often to your investment portfolio and find a way to avoid being thrown off by the investment cycle.
