# Discretely Compounded Rate of Return

A discretely compounded rate of return is simply a compounded rate of return with a discrete compounding frequency such as daily, monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually.

As the frequency of compounding increases, the annual effective yield also increases because the interest or income earned is compounded more frequently.

**Example**

Suppose an investment grows at an annual rate of 10% compounded quarterly. At the end of one year, the investment will grow to:

The effective annual yield is given as:
