What is annualised return?

This figure shows the average return per year on each pound you’ve ever invested.

So for example, a figure of 10% shown here would mean that on average, every pound you have invested has grown by 10p per year.

It reflects all forms of investment returns, including dividends, interest and capital appreciation. It takes account of investments you have held in the past and no longer own. A figure will only appear here after you've held investments for a year or more. It is an average based on the growth of each pound invested. The technical term for this is 'money-weighted'. It doesn't include investments held in company pensions and other linked accounts.

It's different to the annualised return figure shown below in the 'Your investments' section. That figure only takes into account investments you currently hold.
