(i) We will find one portfolio based on 2 and 4year zerocoupon bonds (Portfolio A), and one portfolio based on 2 and 5year zerocoupon bonds. So in both cases, we have two different maturities t 1 and t 2 , and we need to solve 1 . 05 t 1 x + 1 . 05 t 2 y = 4000000(1 . 05) 3 t 1 1 . 05 t 1 x + t 2 1 . 05 t 2 y = 3 4000000(1 . 05) 3 where x and y represent the cashflows at time t 1 and t 2 , respectively. For portfolio A, we find x = 1727675(1 . 05) 2 = 1904761 . 7 and y = 1727675(1 . 05) 4 = 2100000. For portfolio B, we get x = ((2 / 3)4000000(1 . 05) 3 )1 . 05 2 = 2539682 . 5 and y = ((1 / 3)4000000(1 . 05) 3 )1 . 05 5 = 1470000. (ii) We get y Portfolio A Portfolio B t = 0 t = 3 t = 0 t = 31% 3,556,148 4,000,183 3,556,312 4,000,367 1% 3,358,628 4,000,180 3,358,778 4,000,358 2. (i) Let x and y be the asset cashflows (in millions) at time 1 and 6, respectively. We need to solvebe the asset cashflows (in millions) at time 1 and 6, respectively....
