  Invest FAQ: Analysis: Future and Present Value of Money
Future value is simply the sum to which a dollar amount invested today will grow given some appreciation rate.
Present value is the value in today's dollars assigned to an amount of money in the future, based on some estimate rate-of-return over the long-term.
The present value of 10,000 assuming an 8% monthly compounded rate-of-return is 6712.10.

 Future Value of an Annuity
The Future Value of an Ordinary Annuity (FVoa) is the value that a stream of expected or promised future payments will grow to after a given number of periods at a specific compounded interest.
The Future Value of an Ordinary Annuity could be solved by calculating the future value of each individual payment in the series using the future value formula and then summing the results.
The Future Value of an Annuity Due is identical to an ordinary annuity except that each payment occurs at the beginning of a period rather than at the end.

 FPA Journal - Future Value Calculations and the Geometrically Varying Annuity
The purpose of this brief paper is to provide a refresher of the three most common types of future value calculations used by financial planners with special emphasis given to the application of the geometrically varying annuity formula.
The simplest future value calculation involves solving for an unknown value using a present value and a known interest rate and compounding period.
As such, this paper has served as a brief review of the traditional future value formula, the future-value-of-an-annuity formula and the geometrically varying annuity formula, which are of the utmost importance to financial planners.

 The Future Value Fallacy in Estate Tax Planning
Because of the "magic" of compounding, future values are not proportionate to the interest rate or the growth period.
Although future value calculations may be useful in helping a client understand the benefits of taxable gifts during lifetime and the benefits (or costs) of charitable "split" gifts or trusts, future value calculations have little or no benefit in other types of planning.
Future value calculations usually are speculative, confusing, and meaningless and generally should not be used in estate planning calculations or estate planning presentations to clients.

 Ch3
Note that in present value terms, a cash flow that occurs at the beginning of year 2 is the equivalent of a cash flow that occurs at the end of year 1.
The differences in future value from investing at these different rates of return are small for short compounding periods (such as 1 year) but become larger as the compounding period is extended.
The future value of a perpetuity is infinite.

Accumulation is the process of determining the future value of a known present value.
For example, the present value of a three period annuity due is simply the sum of the first payment (which occurs immediately) plus the present value of a two period ordinary annuity.

 Present Value of a Dollar
The present value is the current value of a dollar today that is expected to be received or paid out at some point in the future.
Future dollar values are restated as present values using an equation that incorporates the Present Value Interest Factor (PVIF).
Unless stated otherwise, a present value calculation assumes that the future dollar amount that is being discounted occurs at the end of the future time period.

 FRB: Vehicle Leasing: Leasing vs. Buying: Future Value
This future value, called the residual value, is used to calculate your monthly payment.
If the actual value of the vehicle at lease-end is $8,500, the actual vehicle depreciation over the lease term is $10,500, which is $1,500 more than the lease depreciation you paid.
If the actual value of the vehicle at the end of the lease is $11,500, the actual vehicle depreciation is $7,500, which is $1,500 less than the lease depreciation you paid.

 Economics Interactive Tutorial: Discounting Future Income
The present value of a future income amount is the amount that, if we had it today, we could invest and have it grow to equal the future income amount.
Notice, by the way, the present value of $200 in two years ($181.41) is less than the present value of $200 in one year ($190.48).
A reason for using the term "discount rate" when you calculate a present value is that you are taking a larger number, the future value, and calculating from it a smaller number, the present value.

 Future Value
In general, the future value of a sum of money invested for t years with the interest credited and re-invested at the end of each year is:
Given a present sum of money and a desired future value, one can determine either the interest rate required to attain the future value given the time span, or the time required to reach the future value at a given interest rate.
Beginning with the future value equation and given a fixed time period, one can solve for the required interest rate as follows.

 Present Value and CAGR Formula and Calculator / Graph
Present Value is like Future Value in reverse: you assume you already know the future value of your investment, and want to know what your starting principal will have to be in order to reach your goal in the desired amount of time.
Solving for either the present value or the interest rate may seem like a pretty backwards way of doing things, but these are very useful techniques.
You find the equivalent rate of return when you want to know the yield to maturity of a bond at a given market price; and you calculate the present values of future company earnings when you want to know the fair value of a share of stock.

 Principals of Corporate Finance 6th Edition - Brealey and Myers
The total present value of the current and future cash flows (point D in the future) is found by adding this year's flow:
To keep our diagram simple, we shall assume that you have maximum initial resources of D. Part of this may come from borrowing against future cash flow; but we do not have to worry about that, because, as we have seen, the amount D can always be deployed into future income.
This is the difference between the discounted, or present, value of the future income and the amount of the initial investment.

 SMM: Present and Future Value; Page 9-3, spreadsheet models
Present value and future value are just techniques for computing the value of an asset at one time given its value at another time.
Most formulas that you see for computing present value and future value assume that the prevailing interest rate during that interval is constant.
So if you're computing the future value of, say, a Rembrandt, it might be unwise to use projections of the prime rate in a straightforward application of the future value formula.

 Anything But Ordinary: Calculating The Present And Future Value Of Annuities
If you understand the time value of money and have an understanding of future and present value (which you can read about in the article Understanding The Time Value Of Money) you're ready to learn about annuities and how their present and future values are calculated.
Since the present and future value calculations for ordinary annuities and annuities due are slightly different, we will first discuss the present and future value calculation for ordinary annuities.
The present value of an ordinary annuity is less than that of an annuity due because the further back we discount a future payment, the lower its present value: each payment or cash flow in ordinary annuity occurs one period further into future.

 Ch. IX.? Present Value
Following this plan, the amount of money in the account at the end of the two years, the future value (FV) of this income, when time t = 2 can be estimated by looking at how the weekly receipts accumulate once deposited in the savings account.
This can be explained by the fact that in the continuous model for the computation, the deposits are decreasing continuously rather than discretely and therefore the table will give an underestimate for the continuous, or conversely the continuous model will give an overestimate compared to the discrete model.
And the present rate of receipt of income is expected to continue at $26000 per year for the next two years and the income could be deposited as it is received in an account paying interest 3% per annum, compounded continuously.
