At the beginning of each of the next four years, he deposits an additional \$1,000 each year, and he then liquidates the account at the end of the total five-year period. Suppose that the yearly returns in this account, beginning in year 1, are as follows: 12 percent, 5 percent, 8 percent, 7 percent, and 14 percent. Calculate the arithmetic and geometric average returns for this investment, and determine what the investor’s actual dollar-weighted average return was for this five-year period. Why is the dollar-weighted average return higher or lower than the geometric average return?
