FINA3323 - HW#1 Suggested Solution 2 Question 2 At the end of year four, the portfolio manager’s amount: P n = P 0 (1 + r ) n . P 4 = $500,000(1.023) 4 = $500,000(1.0952) = $547,611.4739 . In three more years at the end of year seven, the manager amount: P 7 = P 4 (1+ r ) 3 . P 7 = $547,611.4739(1.037) 3 = $547,611.4739(1.0952) = $610,673.126. At the end of year seven, the portfolio manager’s amount, which adjusts for semiannual compounding is: P n = P 0 (1 + r /2) 2( n ) . P 7 = $500,000(1 + 0.03/2) 2(7) = $500,000(1.015) 14 = $500,000(1.2318) = $615,877.8653 . Thus, this investment alternative is not more attractive. It is less by the amount of $615,877.8633 – $610,673.126 = - $5,204.7393 Question 3 (i) Accrued Interest: j / k = 126/180 = 0.7 C /2 = ($1,000 × 5%/2) = $2.5 Accrued Interest = 0.7 × $2.5 = $1.75 (ii) Dirty Price: = ቈ $2.5 1.0375 ଴.ଷ + $2.5 1.0375 ଵ.ଷ + $2.5 1.0375 ଶ.ଷ + $2.5 1.0375 ଷ.ଷ + $2.5 1.0375 ସ.ଷ + $2.5 1.0375 ହ.ଷ + $102.5 1.0375 ଺.ଷ = 94.8404 (iii) Price of a bond without accrued interest is called the clean price: $94.84 - $1.75 = $93.09 Question 4 (a) We have a 10-year 3% coupon bond with a par value of $1,000 and a required yield of 15%.

    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.
