Welcome to My Money My Freedom’s Mutual Fund Calculator!

Hey there! We know that planning for retirement can sometimes feel like a daunting task, but you’re taking a fantastic step towards securing your financial future. At My Money My Freedom, we believe in empowering women to take control of their finances and make informed decisions about saving and investing.

How to Use the Calculator

  1. Initial Investment Amount: This is the amount you’re starting with. Enter the total sum you’re investing at the beginning – even if it’s a small amount – every bit helps you get closer to your goals!
  2. Future Planned Contributions (per year): Here, you’ll input how much you plan to add to your investment each year. Regular contributions can significantly boost your savings over time.
  3. Time Horizon (years): How long do you plan to keep this investment? Whether it’s for 5 years, 20 years, or more, enter the number of years you’ll be investing. Remember, the longer you invest, the more potential for growth.
  4. Rate of Return (%): This is the annual return rate you expect to achieve. It’s okay to use an estimated average here – many people use around 6-7%.
  5. Fund Expense Ratio (%): Funds come with fees, and the expense ratio is the annual fee the fund charges. Typically, mutual funds have higher fees than index funds or individual stocks. Enter the rate here to see how these fees can impact your investment.

Once you’ve filled in all the fields, simply hit the “Calculate” button. Our calculator will show you:

  • Ending Value (net with fees): This is what your investment will be worth after the specified time, minus the fees.
  • Ending Value (gross): This is your investment’s value without considering the fees.
  • Cost of Fees: This shows how much you’ll pay in fees over the investment period – because those fees add up!

Why This Matters

Understanding the potential growth of your investments and the impact of fees is crucial. At My Money My Freedom, we believe that individual stocks and index funds, which typically have very low or no fees, are often superior options compared to mutual funds. High fees can significantly erode your savings and reduce your overall returns.

Our goal with this calculator is to help you see the true cost of mutual fund fees over time and consider alternatives that could better serve your financial future – like dividend growth stocks. By being aware of these costs, you can make more informed choices that align with your retirement goals.
