Luke on 2CC – Compound interest, time is your friend!

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in Money Matters, which aired on Friday 5 January 2024 with Ron Henshaw. Leon’s still on holidays but will return next week.  Happy new year to our listeners! Thanks for joining us on 2CC or your favourite podcast streaming service. This week’s show looks at compound interest and the terrific impact it can have on investment returns over time.

Key topics covered include:

  • What can you do for your children or grandchildren (or perhaps yourself)?
  • Compounding interest might be the answer!
  • Can you automate your savings behaviour?
  • What does $5000 look like over 10 years, with $50 a month savings as an example?
  • Of course returns over time will change, but compounding still occurs over time
  • Many people don’t think long term, many people also don’t think multi-generational wealth outcomes
  • Where might you save or invest? Remember all investments have risk!
  • How do you start?
  • Additional resource – check out the Money Smart Compound Interest calculator.
  • Luke shares his top tips around saving and compounding interest
