All problems are to be done by hand unless otherwise stated. 1. An investor has $2 million to invest. He has 5 opportunities for investment, with the following characteristics: i) The yield on the first investment is given by a linear function: r 1 = 3 + 0 . 000012 x 1 , where r 1 = yield per year (%), and x 1 = amount invested ($). Minimum required: $100,000 Maximum allowed: $1,000,000 Years to maturity: 6 ii) The second investment yields: r 2 = 2 + 0 . 000018 x 2 , where r 2 = yield per year (%), and x 2 = amount invested ($). Minimum required: $200,000 Maximum allowed: $1,000,000 Years to maturity: 10 iii) An investment at 5% per year with interest continuously compounded. (An amount A invested at 5% per year with continuously compounded interest becomes Ae 0 . 05 after one year.) Years to maturity: 1
