What is Compound Interest?

Compound interest is the interest when you deposit money into a savings account, or an investment account, it starts to earn money. In simple terms, If you put £10,000 in an account and gain a 5% interest, then after one year, you’d have over £500 of interest earnings.

You just have to put money in a compound interest-earning account and not spend it, your money will be doubled in the coming years.
