Future Value of Annuities

Future Value of Annuities

An annuity is a series of equal payments or receipts that occur at evenly spaced intervals. Leases and rental payments are examples. The payments or receipts occur at the end of each period for an ordinary annuity while they occur at the beginning of each period.for an annuity due.

Future Value of an Ordinary 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. A more direct formula is:

FVoa = PMT [((1 + i)n – 1) / i]
Where:
FVoa = Future Value of an Ordinary Annuity
PMT = Amount of each payment
i = Interest Rate Per Period
n = Number of Periods

Example: What amount will accumulate if we deposit $5,000 at the end of each year for the next 5 years? Assume an interest of 6% compounded annually.
PV = 5,000
i = .06
n = 5
