Future Value Tables

The purpose of the future value tables is to make it possible to carry out future value calculations without the use of a financial calculator.

They provide the value at the end of period n of 1 received now at a discount rate of i%.

The future value formula is:

FV = PV x (1 + i)n

Future value tables are used to provide a solution for the part of the future value formula shown in red, this is sometimes referred to as the future value factor.

FV = PV x Future value factor

Future Value Tables Example

What is the future value of 5,000 received today in 12 years time, if the discount rate is 6%?

PV = 5,000
n = 12
i = 6%

FV = PV x(1 + i)n
FV = 5,000 x (1 + 6%)12
FV = 5,000 x Future value factor for n = 12, i = 6%
FV = 5,000 x 2.0122
FV = 10,061

The future value factor of 2.0122, is found using the tables by looking along the row for n = 12, until reaching the column for i = 6%, as shown in the preview below.
