So we will give you answers to all the questions related to **CAGR** that you want to know in this article.

## What is CAGR?

CAGR is a method of compounding compound annually. Which people use to get the interest found on the interest. Any company growth is taken out on its annual CAGR only by how much% CAGR has the company grown.

**CAGR Meaning**

CAGR stands for Compounding Interest, which is compound interest, which we call interest over interest in common parlance. And this interest over interest is called compound interest.

### CAGR Full Form

### How to Calculate CAGR?

In order to calculate the CAGR of any company, interest has to be applied on the interest. Let us give you an example to explain how it works.

For example, suppose you have invested 1000 rupees for 1 year in a company and the CAGR rate of that company is 12% per annum.

So after one year from today you will get 12% interest on 1000 rupees out of that. That is, you will get Rs 120 interest and you will get Rs 1120.

Now you again save that 1120 rupees for the next year at the rate of 12%, then you will now get interest on 1120 rupees. That is, next year you will get 1254 rupees, in which you will get an interest of 134 rupees. The 14 rupees more received in this interest is the interest received on the interest of 120 rupees received in the first year. And it is the interest received on the interest, so it is called Compounded Return. Also known as CAGR.

## CAGR Formula

For any investment option we can find its CAGR with the help of the formula given below:

Where FV means Final Value means the amount you have received at the end of the investment, SV means the starting value means the amount you have invested. And Year means the number of years you have invested.

### Cagr Calculator Example

If you have an initial investment of Rs. 1 Lakh in a business, it constitutes the **PV**. If the total investment has swollen to Rs 10 Lakh (**FV**) after 5 years (**N**), the CAGR is:

(10,00,000/1,00,000)1 / 5 – 1 or 0.589

*Thus, the CAGR percentage is CAGR x 100 or 58.9%.*

### How to Calculate CAGR in Excel

You can **calculate CAGR** in Excel using the RATE function: *CAGR* = **RATE**(*Years*,,-*PV*,*FV*).

The **RATE**, **PV**, **FV** and **NPER** functions in Excel can be used to calculate each of the four variables associated with the CAGR formula. This is demonstrated in the CAGR_1 tab within the Excel file and the formulas below.
