In simple terms, compound interest is the action of taking the interest you earn on an investment and rolling it back into that investment. This is known as earning interest on your interest. Compounded interest will grow an investment exponentially—and even more so when the investor is not paying taxes each time they take an interest payment.

Einstein discovered a rule around compounding interest, called the Rule of 72. It goes like this: If you take an investment which is compounded annually and divide the interest rate into the number 72, the result you will get is how many years it will take that money to double.
