# Interest-On-Interest

- The interest that is earned upon the re-investment of interest payments. Interest-on-interest is primarily used in the context of coupon paying bonds, where all coupon payments are assumed to be re-invested at some interest rate and held until the bond matures, or when the bond is sold.
Interest-on-interest is an important consideration an investor must make when analyzing potential investments, as interest-on-interest must be considered when forecasting an investment's total cash return.

For simplification, the interest rate used to calculate interest-on-interest can be the bond's yield at the time the coupon payment is made.
