Dutch term or phrase: winstkracht
"Stel dat X over de komende periode een grote stijging doormaakt. Het kan nu een goed moment zijn om in te stappen. Immers hoe langer de rit is die u naar boven maakt, hoe meer de winstkracht Y% in uw voordeel werkt."

A straight 1:1 translation is easily done, but I'm after the proper term here. TIA for your assistance. Cheers, R.

profit drive
Explanation:
power of profit or profit power get many more Google hits than profit force,
but profit drive also gets more than 500 hits in relation to companies trying to drive up profits, so take your pick as to what seems best - I'd go for profit drive

I notice from Kenneth's reference site that they use Power Profit in the names of previous funds

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Ken Cox: Hi Dave -- I suggest googling some sites that use the term in the asker's context (e.g. ). I don't know the financial jargon, but it's a percentage of the capital gain paid out on a fund investment.
