Credit Market Instruments In terms of the timing of cash flow payments, there are four basic types of credit market instruments: Simple loans Fixed payment or fully amortized loans Coupon Bonds Discount Bonds
Present Value/Present Discounted Value It is the discounted value of future cash flows or income Computed using the formula Where PV : Present value CF: Cash flows i = interest rate/yield to maturity n = maturity period n i CF PV ) 1 (

Example Rs 100 is lent out with a maturity period of 1 year and interest rate of 10 percent. After one year the total payment would be Rs 110. If this money is further lent out then after one year total payment would be 110 (1+0.10) = 121. Alternatively, with compound interest rate of 10 percent Rs 100 would become Rs 121 following the formula 100 (1+0.10) (1+0.10) = 100 (1+0.10) 2 = 121 Generalising, we obtain that after n years the payment would be 100 (1+0.10) n . Now working backward, the present value of a future payment, say 121, can be calculated as where CF is the final cash flow (=Rs 121) and i is the interest rate (=10 percent). n i CF ) 1 ( 100
Yield to Maturity The most accurate measure of interest rate Equates the present value of cash flows from a debt instrument with its value today

PV for Credit Market Instruments In terms of the timing of cash flow payments, there are four basic types of credit market instruments: 1. Simple loan - a sum is lent with a maturity date at which the borrower must pay the principal amount with additional simple or compound interest payment P is principal amount, I is interest payment, n is the maturity period and i is interest rate n i I P PV ) 1 (

### What students are saying

• 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.
