This was covered in the video but not the slide deck (PDF).
Investors are receiving $833.33 per month, which is $10,000 per year, on each $100,000 invested. Those who have chosen to automatically reinvest their monthly returns are benefiting from compounding over time. This helps raise their internal rate of return (IRR) to 10.47%.
An investment of $100,000 is projected to be worth $150,000 after 5 years if you choose to take your distributions and leave them in a checking account. That same investment is projected to be worth $164,531 after 5 years if you chose to have your returns automatically reinvested.
A $100,000 investment is projected to be worth $300,000 after 20 years if you take your distributions and leave them in a checking account. That increases substantially to $732,807 if you chose to have them automatically reinvested.
As you can see, reinvesting can lead to vastly improved outcomes over time. This is why Albert Einstein referred to it as the “miracle of compound interest.”
