Return on Equity Calculator

ROE is used to find equity returns and indicates the efficiency of a company. If you want to find the same, you can use our return on equity calculator.

ROE or return on equity shows the ratio of profit the corporation or business firm earned from its equity. In other words, ROE can also be described as the capability of a company to earn profit from shareholders' investments. That is why it is also known as RONW (return on net worth). A company should get an ROE as significant as feasible. However, from an Economist's point of view, a 10-15% ROE must be maintained by a company.


Formula of Return on Equity Calculator

If you want to estimate the ROE of a company quickly, you can use our return on equity calculator. Or If you want to find it manually, then you must need the values of two variables on which ROE depends:

  • Equity/Assets

  • Net profit

  • After knowing the above variables, you can use the formula listed below.

ROE = (net profit / equity) * 100%


To calculate the rate of return, you can use our Rate Of Return Calculator.


For a more precise and explicit understanding to know what ROE is? let us have an example below.

Assume a company ABC has generated a net profit of $34,500 this month. The total equity that the company holds is $456,000; now calculate the return on equity from the above-given data.

Given data

Net profit = $34,500
Equity = $456,000

To Find

Return on equity = ?


We will find the ROE using the formula listed above.

ROE = (net profit / equity) * 100%

Putting values in the formula:

ROE = 34,500 / 456,000 * 100%

The return on equity an ABC company gets is 7.57%.
