## What is simple interest?

It is the rate of profit earned by the principal only during the investment period.

## How is simple interest calculated?

Calculated by the following formula.

[(Compound Interest Rate / 100 + 1) ^{ number of days / 365 } - 1] x 36500 / number of days

**Example:**

13 December 2020 term bond

Today: 1 March 2020

Days to Maturity: 287 days

Compound Interest Rate: 75.12%

Simple Interest Rate = [(75.12 / 100 + 1)^{287 / 365} - 1] x 36500 / 287 = 70.40
