A perpetuity is simply a set of equal payments that are paid forever. If the payment is C, then the present value of the perpetuity is PV 0 = C/r The value of a perpetuity can be used to approximate the value of similar long- lived annuities. Example: Assume a 10% interest rate and compare the following alternatives. A: a perpetuity of $100 B: a 30-year annuity of $100 PV A = 100/0.1 = $1,000. PV B = $942.69. The PV of the 30-year annuity approximates to the PV of a similar perpetuity. constant growth perpetuity  is the same as a regular perpetuity, but just that  the cash flow is growing (or declining) each year at a constant rate forever. If the payment is C and growth rate is g,   PV 0  = C/(r-g)  … PV = C + C/r 1. Which of the following questions are addressed by financial managers? II.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
