Rate of Return Formula

ROR = \left(\frac{EV}{BV}\right)^{1/n} − 1

BV = initial value
EV = final value
n = number of years

Rate of Return Formula with Regular Growth Compounding

ROR = C \times \left(\frac{EV}{BV}\right)^{1/(n \times C)} − 1

BV = beginning value
EV = ending value
C = number of times growth compounds in period
n = number of years
