10 Example 3? Invest .5 in three years .5 at the beginning of year 1 .5 at the beginning of year 2 .5 at the beginning of year 3 Worth \$5 million at the end of year five
11 Why The difference? First two examples are just examining two points in time. i.e .today and some point in the past. No transactions or cashflows occurred in the in between. The third example, complicated the calculations because we didn’t invest the \$1.5 all at once. Notice that stock indices use the first approach-you only calculate returns at two points in time – assumes that you buy and hold. The third has shortened the average investment holding period so the time value of money says that the return is higher other things being equal.

12 Why The difference? Gets even more complicated if we measure returns for an investment where we also take money out over a period of time as well as put money in over a period of time.
13 Why The difference? Same with your savings account – if you put money in at one point and take it out at another point, you can calculate the return for that period of time which will be the APR, but if you put money in, take money out over a period time, the actual return over the life of your investment getting is not the APR but something different that depends on the average time you held the money. The APR assumes you put money in a lump and hold it
