The Rule of 72

The Rule of 72 estimates the number of years it takes your investment to double in value at any given compounded interest rate. For example, if you invested $5,000 at 8% interest, it will take about 9 years to double to $10,000. (72 divided by 8 = 9). We work with some great financial advisors and would be happy to offer you a referral. Please contact Karin Lichtenstein,
