Net Future Value (NFV) Calculator

LAST UPDATE: September 25th, 2020

Definition – What is Net Future Value (NFV)?

Net Future Value (NFV) is the value in the future of a series of financial streams.

At its core, it combines a number of different future value calculations added together.

Formula – How NFV is calculated?

Each year is a separate future value calculation that are added together.

The future value formula is:

Future Value = Present Value x (1 + Rate of Return)Number of Periods

Where:

• Present Value” is a sum of money in the present.
• Rate of return” is a decimal value rate of return per period (the calculator above uses a percentage). A return of “2.2%” per year would be calculated as “0.022.”
• Number of Periods” are the number of compounding periods. In the case of Net Future Value, it is the number of years until the future value year.

Example

Assuming a 2.2% rate of return, what is the net future value of \$1,000 1 year before the date, \$2,000 2 years before the date, and \$5,000 3 years before the date?

• FV of \$1,000 over 1 year = \$1,022.00
• FV of \$2,000 over 2 years = \$2,088.97
• FV of \$5,000 over 3 years = \$5,337.31

Total of all FV sums = \$8448.28

FAQ

What is the difference between future value and net future value?

Future value is the value in the future of a single amount (or of an annuity).

Net future value is the sum of multiple future value calculations.

What is the difference between net future value and net present value?

Net present value (NPV) calculates the value of a sum of money in today’s dollars.

Net future value (NFV) calculates the value of a sum of money at some point in the future.
