Useful information about the foreign investment calculator which lets you compare investments denominated by different currencies:

  • The profit comparison calculator lets you compare two investments denominated by two different currencies to find out which is more profitable based on exchange rates and investment terms.
  • Example of a possible use case: An investment vehicle denominated by a foreign currency (a stock listed on a foreign exchange, a foreign bond or a foreign fixed deposit account, for example) may pay out higher returns than a similar investment denominated by the Swiss. However, changes in currency exchange rates directly affect investments which are denominated by foreign currencies. This calculator lets you find out which investment would deliver the highest returns in Swiss francs.
  • Investment 1 results show the final capital, the profit and the exchange rate profit resulting from investment 1 (denominated by the base currency). Investment 2 results show the final capital, the profit, the exchange rate profit and the total profit resulting from investment 2 (denominated by a foreign currency). The calculator also compares the total profits of both investments taking the exchange rates at the beginning and end of the investment term into account.
  • Other investment calculators: Yield calculator, foreign currency investment profit calculator, break-even exchange rate calculator.
  • You can find more investment calculators here.
  • Calculations are based on an accreting interest model by which annual returns are added to the investment capital and invested at the same rate of return until the end of the investment term.
  • When the investment term includes months in addition to whole years, returns for those months are calculated proportionately based on the accrued returns of the previous year.
  • The final capital of both investments is calculated exactly and rounded to the second decimal. Additional results are calculated based on the rounded final capital and are then rounded to the second decimal.
