Annualized return

Annualized or annual return refers to the percentage return on an investment had the investment term been one year.

Unlike average return, it is not calculated by dividing the return by the number of years invested, since compound interest is applied to the investments. This results in an exponential return.

Annualized return is calculated as a geometric mean.
