The investment glossary presents straight-forward definitions plus key related topics and links to other articles that should be of interest.

Definition
The term "Annualised" is used to describe the returns on an investment on a year by year basis. For example: If a 3 year investment promises a 30% return over 3 years - the annualised return is "10% annualised" (even though the gains in year one might be 15%, year two 10% and year three 5%). Not to be confused with P/A or "per annum" - which is a fixed yearly figure.
