In its 2016 Guide to Retirement, J.P. Morgan Asset Management included a powerful illustration of how compounding returns lead to huge differences between investors who start out young and those who wait until later in their careers before seriously saving.
JPMorgan shows outcomes for four hypothetical investors who invest $10,000 a year at a 6.5% annual rate of return over different periods of their lives:
- Chloe invests for her entire working life, from 25 to 65.
- Lyla starts 10 years later, investing from 35 to 65.
- Quincy puts money away for only 10 years at the start of his career, from ages 25 to 35.
- Noah saves from 25 to 65 like Chloe, but instead of being moderately aggressive with his investments he simply holds cash at a 2.25% annual return.
