Our ROI calculator takes raw financial information from your investments and translates them into two outputs: your final ROI percentage, and your annual ROI percentage. This helps you see how an investment performs over time and can help you hone your investment strategy.

Why should I use it?

Often, a user will choose the best investment app, login, and immediately invest. However, one of the most powerful and important concepts to understand in economics is opportunity cost: the loss of potentially larger gains when you choose one less profitable investment option instead of a more profitable one. By precisely calculating the ROI of a given investment vehicle, you can not only see the raw size of your returns, but also figure out if you might be able to grab bigger gains by investing in a different asset.

What is ROI?

Return on Investment (ROI) measures the performance of an investment, determining how much you stand to make by investing in an asset over a given time period. To calculate ROI, divide your return by the cost of the investment. The result is then expressed as a percentage or a ratio.
