Money Weighted Return with HP 12C David Bag Unregistered Posts: 2 Threads: 1 Joined: Feb 2008 02-02-2008, 03:53 PM Is there a way to use the HP 12C to calculate a Money Weighted Return with multiple cash flows? Sample Situation: 1st of the Month Account Value = 1,000,000 5th Day of the Month: Addition to Account: \$30,000 16th Day of Month: Addition to Account: \$20,000 30th Day of Month (end of month): Value of Account = 1,080,000 How do you calculate the Money Weighted Return with the HP12C I know the actual formula, and the results, which are: 1,080,000 = 1,000,000*(1+R))^30 + 30,000*(1+R)^25 + 20,000*(1+R)^14 R = .0009536 So, the monthly return = (1+.0009536)^30 - 1 = 2.90% Just looking for a quicker easier way to do it with the calculator..
