Annual Percentage Yield (APY) expresses an annual rate of return taking into account the effect of compounding.
Simply put, the higher the APY, the faster your balance grows. If you have two similar interest rates, the more frequently interest is compounded, the higher the APY will be. Those higher APYs can mean more savings for you.
An interest rate is the rate at which a financial institution agrees to pay you back for holding your money.
