This is not really an error. The answer is correct if you assume continuous compounding. Try evaluating 90000*EXP(6*.01) which equals 95565.2891891.

There are several settings:


as well as settings for compounding periods and payment periods that may affect it.

I really, really doubt there is any new bug in the FI routine after all these years.
