Accurate, Efficient and User Friendly

   

Almost everyone in this world has some kind of investment. Be it a house, a stock, savings account, some kind of fund or various financial products your banker promotes to you, you want it to make money. 

 

The question is, how to judge if an investment is a good investment? You cannot just look at the absolute Gain (or Loss). The absolute Gain (or loss) is determined by the amount of money invested combined with the length of time you hold that investment. 

 

The compound "Annualized Rate of Return" is the most accurate criteria to judge if an investment is good or not. The bigger the Annualized Return, the better. After you know the Annualized Return of your investments, you can reallocate your investments efficiently to maximize your profit. 

 

The "Universal Investment Return Calculator" is being sold in Apple App Store. You can click this link to check it out: http://appstore.com/smartrosecorp . It has following unique features:

 

1. It can calculate all kinds of investment and can be easily tailored to suit your needs. For example, it can handle irregular cash flow using mathematical formula same as the XIRR function. So far we haven't seen any app in the store that can do the same thing.
