Depending on changes in the rate of return over time, what you’re invested in, how you invest it, how interest is applied, and possible tax implications, the actual amount of time needed to double your money will vary. You should not rely on the results as indication of your financial needs and we recommend that you seek out your own investment, legal, tax or professional advice.
