## What is Future Value (FV)?

According to Investopedia, Future value (FV) is the value of a currentÂ assetÂ at a specified date in the future based on an assumed rate of growth.

If, based on a guaranteed growth rate, a $10,000 investment made today will be worth $100,000 in 20 years, then the FV of the $10,000 investment is $100,000. The FV equation assumes a constant rate of growth and a single upfront payment left untouched for the duration of the investment.

According to Wikipedia, **Future value**Â is theÂ valueÂ of anÂ assetÂ at a specific date.^{} It measures the nominal future sum of money that a given sum of money is “worth” at a specified time in the future, assuming a certainÂ interest rate, or more generally,Â rate of return; it is theÂ present valueÂ multiplied by theÂ accumulation function.^{}Â The value does not include corrections for inflation or other factors that affect the true value of money in the future. This is used inÂ time value of moneyÂ calculations.
