XIRR
Definition of XIRR
Calculates the internal rate of return of an investment based on a specified series of potentially irregularly spaced cash flows.
Sample Usage
XIRR(B2:B25,C2:C25)
XIRR({4000,200,250,300},{DATE(2012,01,01),DATE(2012,06,23),DATE(2013,05,12),DATE(2014,02,09)},0.09)
Syntax
XIRR(cashflow_amounts, cashflow_dates, [rate_guess])
cashflow_amounts
 An array or range containing the income or payments associated with the investment.cashflow_amounts
must contain at least one negative and one positive cash flow to calculate rate of return.
cashflow_dates
 An array or range with dates corresponding to the cash flows incashflow_amounts
.rate_guess
 [ OPTIONAL  0.1 by default ]  An estimate for what the internal rate of return will be.
Notes
If the days specified in
cashflow_dates
are at a regular interval, useIRR
instead.Each cell in
cashflow_amounts
should be positive if it represents income from the perspective of the owner of the investment (e.g. coupons) or negative if it represents payments (e.g. loan repayment).XNPV
will return zero ifdiscount
is set to the result ofXIRR
using the same cash flow amounts and schedule.

 values  An array or range containing the income or payments associated with the investment.
 values must contain at least one negative and one positive cash flow to calculate rate of return.
dates
 An array or range with dates corresponding to the cash flows in values.guess
 [ OPTIONAL  0.1 by default ]  An estimate for what the internal rate of return will be.
