What is ‘Unannualized’
A rate of return on an investment for a period other than one year. An unannualized return may be used to report results for a month, quarter or for several years. When the returns on a particular investment are converted to reflect the rate on an annual basis, it is referred to as the annualized return.
The term “unannualized” refers to investment returns that have not been adjusted to reflect the effect of compounding over a 12-month period. In other words, it is a calculation that does not take into account the impact of reinvesting earnings throughout the year.
Unannualized returns are typically used for short-term investments, such as money market accounts or short-term bonds, where the compounding effect may not be significant.
On the other hand, annualized returns take into account the compounding effect and are therefore more useful for long-term investments.
It is important to note that unannualized returns can still be useful in certain situations, such as comparing performance across fund managers with different holding periods. Overall, understanding the difference between these terms is crucial for making informed investment decisions.
It is sometimes difficult to compare unannualized rates because of different time periods; therefore, some people annualize the return so that it can be compared to other companies or returns. However, annualized rates are only estimates. For example, if the return for January was 1%, this would be the unannualized return, the annualized return without compounding is 12%.
