Investment Simulation Calculator

This is a free online calculator for investment decisions.

This simulation helps to show possible results with:

  • Initial Deposit: Amount invested at the start.
  • Yearly Additions: Additional amount invested every year.
  • Investment Return: Rate of return on your investment.
  • Years: Total number of years.
  • # of Simulations: Number of times the simulation is run.
  • Return Variation: How much the return varies every year. For example, a return variation of 20% with an investment return of 10% will randomly give a return between 0 and 20% every year.
