IRR/Internal Rate of Return

The rate of return that discounts future cash flows from an investment to the exact amount of the investment. The discount rate that makes the present value of all invested capital equal to the present value of all returns. The IRR is calculated as an annualized compounded rate of return measure and takes the time value of money into account. IRR is the standard calculation for private market performance by the CFA Institute.
